'System.ValueTuple, Version=0.0.0.0 required for Add-Migration on .NET 4.6.1 Class Library

I upgraded a .net standard class library from Entity Framework Core 1.1 to Entity Framework 2.0

I am trying to run Add-Migration on an Entity Framework Core Class Library that targets .net framework 4.6.1

Add-Migration MyMigration

But I then get the following error

System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.ValueTuple, Version=0.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=cc7b13ffcd2ddd51' or one of its dependencies.

I added the nuget package of System.ValueTuple to my csproj but I still get the error

 <PackageReference Include="System.ValueTuple" Version="4.4.0" />

Add AutoGenerateBindingRedirects and GenerateBindingRedirectsOutputType to your class library csproj

e.g.

<PropertyGroup>
    <TargetFramework>net461</TargetFramework>

    ....

    <AutoGenerateBindingRedirects>true</AutoGenerateBindingRedirects>
    <GenerateBindingRedirectsOutputType>true</GenerateBindingRedirectsOutputType>
</PropertyGroup>

I had the same problem, and it got fixed after installing .NET 4.7.1 framework

Comments
  • so did you change the target framwork of your classs library too? because mine class library project says: <TargetFramework>netstandard2.0</TargetFramework> should I change that too?
  • No you shouldn't do as my project target .net framework instead of .net core. Just add the two properties mentioned and see if that works.
