Does Visual Studio Mac support NetCore 2 Preview?

Hey All,

Does Visual Studio Mac support NetCore 2 Preview? I've installed both, but VS Mac only shows .NETCoreApp 1.0 and .NETCoreApp 1.1?

    Hey Matt,

    I put together some instructions

    Quick clarifying question... on the bottom of that page in the section ".NET Standard 2.0 Project" you have:


    When I add this the project fails to run even from the CLI tools. Should that say netcoreapp2.0? It's a bit confusing since the two examples seem to conflict with each other.

    The two examples are for two different project types. A .NET Standard project is a library project and so you will not be able run that. If you want a project that you run you should target netcoreapp. The console project and ASP.NET Core projects target netcoreapp.
