Entity Framework Missing in VS2010 RC?

After upgrading to VS2010 RC I no longer see Entity Framework in the Data sub-category. In its place is that friendly old LINQ to SQL.


After installing the POCO template I am able to see it under the “Code” sub-category.


However when I try to add it to a project I get this error message:


All I have to say is: What the heck Microsoft?

UPDATE: As it turns out. It was my own foolishness. Having installed VS2010 from an ISO file and having to reboot my computer a couple of times, the ISO doesn’t automatically re-mount after the restart. Therefore, I just assumed the installation was complete. However, it was not. There were a couple important things required for Entity Framework to start showing up. Such as ADO.NET Entity Framework Tools. 🙂
