Possibly save 1 hour of your time: When you try to install a nuget package with a dependency on .NET Standard 2.0, it gives you this error.

.NET Standard 2.0 is supported by .NET Core 2.

You can right click your project >> select properties. Check to see what .NET Core you are using.

dot net core 2

If you don’t have .NET Core 2.0, the easiest way is to download latest is to go into Visual Studio > Tools > Extensions and Updates > Under Updates > Product Updates > you should be able to see Visual Studio Update.

You can also download SDK and Runtime here
