  • Hi _dNza,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, 'Microsoft.Build.Framework 16.0.461’ depends on ‘.NET Framework 4.7.2’, So one of solutions is to update the framework to 4.7.2, another is to use the old Microsoft.Build.Framework version.

    Hope it can help you.

    Best Regards,
