Can I develop applications and services with the EF runtime using Visual Studio 2010?
Yes. You can use the EF 6 runtime in any project targeting .NET 4.0 with Visual Studio 2010. You just need to install the EntityFramework NuGet package in your project as described in the "EF Runtime" section of the Getting Entity Framework page. One caveat on this is that there is no version of EF Tools that was designed to work with both Visual Studio 2010 and EF6, therefore only Code First is supported.
