Under my edmx it doens't show the store procedures that supposed to bring from the database. That's why I don't see the option "Update Model from Database". Where should be the store procedures?

I am running locally. Shouldn't have any problems with permissions. Where can I find "model browser"?

You have to right-click on the edmx file in the solution explorer and choose "Open". That will then open up the model designer.

Once you have opened the model, the should be a pane called "model browser" (if it isn't open you can get to it from View > Other Windows > Entity Data Model Browser). In the model browser there should be a folder called "Store Procedures", right-click on that and choose "Update model from database.." to pull in the procedures you need.
