is missing. VS 2010 SP1 includes an entity framework template. entity-framework templates visual-studio-2010


VS 2010 Professional with SP1 is what I have. I can see EF in the list of programs to uninstall or delete.

These unanswered questions have previously been sent by me. therefore beginning a new thread.

Additionally, searching online didn't provide any assistance. A few sites recommended reinstalling Visual Studio 2010.

Can I transfer the EF template to my computer without having to reinstall Visual Studio 2010? I'm grateful.

Accepted Answer

The issue with the EF project template was resolved by reinstalling Visual Studio 2010.

  1. Removing VS 2010
  2. Remove all add-ons, including SL Toolkit and EF Library 4.0.
  3. Setup VS 2010
  4. Install any other plugins.

When the installation requests it, restart the computer.

Please give this a try as well.

The EF template issue was resolved when I started Visual Studio 2010 in maintenance mode. However, I was unable to produce any EDMX. I encountered a DLL error. I didn't attempt transferring a DLL from someone else's computer. That, in my opinion, could have solved the issue.


As mentioned by Sutikshan Dubey, kindly see whether "Add New item" resolves the issue zzz -52-zzz

The template itself is often found in a zipfile named in the directory Programmer Files[(x86)] Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0, Common 7, Ide, Templates, C#, and 1033. Additionally, there is a copy in Software Program Files (x86) ItemTemplatesCache-CSharp-Data-1033 Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0 Common7 IDE, which is where VS reads it.

Exists that file in both places? If not, copy it from a different computer. If it exists but isn't detected by VS, another issue arises. Try launching devenv.exe once with the /resetskippkgs command line flag in such situation.
