.Net Core SDK


Package test results have failed.

This package is exempt from moderation. While it is likely safe for you, there is more risk involved.

.NET Core is a set of runtime, library and compiler components. Microsoft uses these components in various configurations for device and cloud workloads. You can do the same for your app or service.
Managed runtimes make code easy to write and guarantee safe execution. .NET Core manages memory with a garbage collector, compiles your code with a JIT compiler or ahead of time with .NET Native.
You can create .NET Core apps that run on multiple OSes and CPUs. .NET Core runs on Windows. Ports are in progress for Linux, OS X and FreeBSD, as is integration with the LLVM compiler.
This package only supports x64 architecture.

To install .Net Core SDK, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install dotnetcoresdk --version 1.0.0-RC2 --pre

To upgrade .Net Core SDK, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:
