Work Around for .NET Framework 4.7 or a later update is already installed on this computer

dotnet Visual Studio

I see this message most times I format my machines after opening existing projects in Visual Studio and I always forgot how I solve it


You may think well that's simple right, install .net 4.7... the only problem then is you get this message which might be why you came to this post Smile


The reason for this is that you need to install the Dev Pack for .net 4.7. In my case I already installed .net 4.7.1 and so just installed 4.7 didn't work for me. 


Hope this helps someone else and also future me if you reading this you owe me a beer Open-mouthed smile.
