"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
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.
