    Umbraco v8 Nuget wont run

    Im creating a new black project, using vs2017. Making sure its .net 4.7.2

    Install the nuget nightly build

    All i get is 'Cannot load a reference assembly for execution.' problems. If its not Umbraco.models, its or one of the other system dlls.

    I've got to the point of just copying every system dll into the bin folder but it just complains about oterh dlls? It shouldn't be this hard to get from nuget and build surely

    I think you also need to ensure you also have the .net 4.7.2 developer pack installed (see

    Again while Umbraco 8 is in alpha I think the process of getting it going is a little difficult, but something I am sure they will have sorted out before a "proper" release is pushed out

    Yes, I followed all those instructions, even installing the dev pack (although it should really be needed when just running it from nuget packages rather than compiling the source). Still hit all these problems

    You need to have at least version 15.9 of VS2017, this error we've seen when using lower versions.
