MySQL .Net Connector not available on EF 6.0

I am running Windows 8.1 Pro Update.

I have created a WPF application in Visual Studio 2013 Update 2, targeting .Net 4.5.2. I then added an "ADO.NET Entity Data Model", selected the "EF Designer from database" option, clicked next, selected the connection (to a MySQL database), clicked next, and then was asked to choose a version of the Entity Framework to use. The problem is that EF 6.0 is greyed out, and I can only select EF 5.0. There is a message that says:

"An Entity Framework database provider compatible with the latest version of Entity Framework could not be found for your data connection. If you have already installed a compatible provider, ensure you have rebuilt your project before performing this action. Otherwise, exit this wizard, install a compatible provider, and rebuild your project before performing this action."

Now, I have installed MySQL Server 5.6.19, with MySQL for Visual Studio 1.1.4 and .Net Connector 6.8.3.

My first thought was that I am targeting a .Net Framework version which is too new, so I tried creating a .Net 4.5, as well as a .Net 4.0 WPF app, rebuilt the solution in each case, and tried again, but I received the exact same error message.

Any ideas anyone?
