Unable to load BingMapsRESTToolkit assembly when referencing .NET Standard 2.0 project from .NET Framework 4.7 project RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've implemented the BingMapsRESTToolkit in a library project that targets .NET Standard 2.0 Framework.  When referenced from a project that targets .NET Core 2.0, the assembly loads and works correctly.  When running the exact same code from a project that targets .NET Framework 4.7, the project compiles and NuGet downloads the assemblies, but at run-time, it throws an exception:

    "Could not load file or assembly 'BingMapsRESTToolkit.Standard, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified."

    The exception details indicate that at run-time it's looking for "BingMapsRESTToolkit.Standard.dll", but the bin directory contains "BingMapsRESTToolkit.dll".

    The NuGet spec:

    Indicates that for .NET Standard 2.0, the file should be named "BingMapsRESTToolkit.Standard.dll", while for all other frameworks the file is named "BingMapsRESTToolkit.Standard.dll".

    Is this to be expected?
