Missing Entity Data Model in VS 2012

I cannot find the Entity Data Model under the 'Data' tab when adding a new item.

I have looked at several questions and answers, information on this and none of the solutions have worked.

I have repaired, uninstalled and reinstalled, installed the EF Tools package manually and tried uninstalling all VS related programs. I have also tried creating several new projects, Class Libraries, Web Projects under different .NET frameworks and it isn't there.

Main project: Visual Studio 2012, Class Library Project .NET 4.0

Answer

I updated Visual Studio 2012 using this link: http://www.microsoft.com/visualstudio/eng/downloads#d-visual-studio-2012-update. After this update, the "Entity Data Model" option was added to the data tab.
