Nightly Build Prompts to Install .Net

Post by wcndave »

Description of problem or question:

Nightly Build says to install .net when I run, but I already have .net installed.


Operating system and version (e.g., Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, macOS 10.13 High Sierra, Windows 10 Creators Update):

Windows 10 20H2 19042.1052

The nightly builds Require the .NET 5 *Desktop Runtime* (https://dotnet.microsoft.com/download/dotnet/5.0 - right hand column)

Ok, thanks. I thought it might be an error. Seems weird that the nightly version (which must get turned into stable all the time), requires an extra framework. Perhaps it's pre-compiled or something...

1.3.3 uses .NET Framework 4.8 which comes with Windows 10 since the may 2019 update.

The Current snapshot build uses the .NET 5 Desktop runtime which is not included in Windows and must be installed separately.
