Where are Entity Framework Tools in EF6 and Visual Studio 2017?

c# entity-framework visual-studio-2017

Question

For the life of me, I cannot locate the EDMX file, Entity Data Tools, Model Browser, or Entity Designer even though I'm using Visual Studio 2017 and Entity Framework 6...

Am I going crazy over here? I've started several new projects in an effort to locate these UI-based tools for using the Entity Framework data models, but I'm having no luck.

Please assist!

I think the VS2017 Install has the appropriate tools installed:

Don't assume those tools are installed by default; you have to go to Individual Components during the installation of VS2017 to install them.

  • Separate Components
    • Components, Libraries, and SDK

This installation may be started using the VS Installer.

Entity Framework is absent from Visual Studio 2017's Add New Item list.
