Can't find ADO.net Entity Data Model template in VS2017

.net asp.net-mvc entity-framework model-view-controller visual-studio-2017

Question

I was trying to create an ASP.NET MVC web application in Visual Studio 2017. I need to take an EF database-first approach for the work.

Unfortunately I can't find the ADO.NET Entity Data Model template in my "Data" template folder:

enter image description here

I have tried following suggestions which didn't work for me.

  1. Installing Entity Framework 6.x via NuGet
  2. Installing package manually by double clicking latest msi file
  3. Changing .NET version from 4.6.x to 3.5

NOTE: I have VS 2015 and VS 2017 both installed on my machine. Only VS 2017 has the problem.

I have created the ASP.NET MVC project as follows:

File -> New -> Project -> Web -> ASP.NET Web Application (.NET Framework) -> MVC

Does anyone know a solution for this problem?
