MSBuild 14 and ASP.Net Core web app RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am currently using an ASP.NET Core ap using .csproj instead of project.json. (Tooling preview 4) 

    Azure gives me: 

    "Nothing to do. None of the projects in this solution specify any packages for NuGet to restore."

    I believe this might be from Azure using MSBuild 14 over 15, so it's not accepting the lack of project.json (or packages.config).

  • Hello:

        I believe this message shows up when running "nuget3.5 restore" against a preview4 dotnet core project. How are you deploying to azure? can you paste here the entire error message? currently, the easiest way of getting a preview4 project(although azure web only have preview3 cli tools) to run in azure is through this:

    SCM_SCRIPT_GENERATOR_ARGS=--aspNetCore "csproj file path" --solutionFile "solution file path"

    please refer to this [documentation](https://github.com/projectkudu/kudu/wiki/Configurable-settings#taking-over-the-script-generator-command-line) for usage

  • Thank you very much! 

    That was indeed the problem and I got it sorted quite quickly.

  • Hello:

        I have good news, Azure just pushed an update to support projects created with latest dotnet tooling, you don't need SCM_SCRIPT_GENERATOR_ARGS=--aspNetCore "csproj file path" --solutionFile "solution file path" anymore, you can deploy your project as is, let me know if you run into troubles doing that
