It's just not a sane user experience to maintain. Due to some Microsoft packages using the NETStandard library for their < 2.0 packages. With .NET 4.5 and netstandard1.x, users are prompted to install 40-50 package dependencies which are not necessary at all. But net461 can use netstandard2 which doesn't have the mess. Given the audience numbers, MiniProfiler v4 will only support .NET 4.6.1+ (netstandard2 level) for desktop. This also means downstream packages (e.g. MiniProfiler extensions) can just target netstandard 1.5 and 2.0.
