I am having VS 2010 Professional with SP1. I can see EF listed under Uninsall/remove a program list.
I have already referred these questions which don't have any solution. Hence starting a new thread.
Searching over internet didn't provide much help either. There were few blogs suggesting to reinstall VS 2010.
Is there a way I can download and copy ADO.net EF template on my machine without the need to reinstall VS 2010. Thank you.

Missing template (.zip)
Reinstalling VS 2010 fixed the problem with ADO.net EF project template.
Restart the machine when requested by the installer.
Also, please try out this.
When I ran VS 2010 in maintenance mode, the EF template problem got fixed. But I was not able to create any EDMX. I got missing DLL error. I did not try copying DLL from other's machine. I think that might have fixed the problem.
The template itself is normally located under \Program Files[ (x86)]\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\ide\itemtemplates\CSharp\Data\1033 in a zipfile called AdoNetEntityDataModelCSharp.zip . There is also a copy in \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ ItemTemplatesCache\CSharp\Data\1033 , which is where VS reads it from.
Does that file exist in both locations? If not, copy it from another machine. If it exists but doesn't show up in VS, something else is wrong. In that case try running devenv.exe once with the /resetskippkgs command line parameter.
