C# Question

VS Studio now including global.json in every project and .netCore?

I installed R tools for Visual Studio because I am doing some class work where I need to use R, but after installing that every time I start a new project it loads .netCore Nuget package and I have a solution folder with global.json file in it and a src folder with the rest of the project...

What is going on with this? If I get rid of the Nuget package nothing works, saying it can't find the target framework, etc...Unsure why or how this got installed but I don't like it...from what I am seeing it has something to do with a version of do I restore functionality back to normal and not have to load .netCore for every project??


The latest version of Visual Studio as of right now when I'm posting this (Sept 12th 2016) includes .NET Core 1.0 and the RC2 Tooling.

So when you create a new project, you'll need to read what type of project you wish to create.

Check out this dialog window, when I create a new project:

enter image description here

Ok - RED boxes are the new .NET Core project type, which includes that *.json file, while the BLUE boxes are your old school/more traditional way, with the .csproj, etc.

So read the options and choose what you would like, first.

BONUS SIDE TIP: global.json will be leaving in the next update.
