Creating a .Net Core library using Visual Studio 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi.

    I'm trying to experiment with creating a .Net Core library using Visual Studio 2015.

    From what I've read, I needed to install the .Net Core SDK, which I've done.  The file name for this install was dotnet-sdk-2.0.3-win-gs-x64.exe.

    But with that in place, I'm still not seeing any .Net Core options when I use the Visual Studio 2015 IDE and try to create a new C# project.

    The web site where I downloaded the .Net Core SDK (https://www.microsoft.com/net/learn/get-started/windows) said to install the SDK and then install Visual Studio and select the ".Net Core cross-platform development workload" during installation.  But I already had Visual Studio 2015 installed.  How do I get it to present .Net Core as a possible template for a new C# project?

  • Hi dacoup,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Please make sure you have VS 2015 with Update3, then install .net core 1.0.1 VS 2015 tooling preview2 , restart your VS, Click File - New Project., Expand Visual C# - .NET Core on the left side. .Net core templates will show as below:
