Uninstalling Visual Studio 2017 RC appears to have broken Xamarin

In a previous post, I mentioned some difficulties with the latest Visual Studio 2017 RC, and how uninstalling it, plus installing the latest Typescript release, appeared to have minimized the damage.

Unfortunately, I apparently have spoken too soon, as I discovered today that an Android app project is broken, showing the project as being incompatible, and there are no longer any Xamarin project templates to be had.  Even worse, there doesn’t appear to be a ‘repair’ option, so I’ve yet to figure out how to fix Xamarin.

Again, my fault for blanket installing without testing, but still very annoying.

Scaffold-DbContext doesn’t appear to work with EF Core 1.1

Are you surprised?  Me either.

Given this NuGet Package Console command:

Scaffold-DbContext -Connection "data source=MyServer;initial catalog=MyDb;integrated security=True" -Provider "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer"

where I’ve obviously replace my actual server name and database name, one gets this error:

Could not load file or assembly 'System.Data.SqlClient, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a'. The system cannot find the file specified.

Well, that’s because EF Core 1.1 along with the SqlServer package requires SqlClient version 4.3.0
