To install additional .NET Core runtimes or SDKs:


csproj's directives like




are ignored by dotnet build.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a solution.
  2. Create a netcoreapp2.0 or a netcoreapp3.0 project A
  3. Create a class library targeting net472 called B
  4. Edit A's csproj and add to it:
  1. Reference B from A
  2. Compile the solution with dotnet build

Expected Behavior:
A compilation error.

Actual Behavior:
The compilation succeeds, with a warning NU1702, which is not treated as an error.

Additional notes:

The reference from NetCoreApp to .NET 4.7.2 project raises a NU1702 warning, which should be treated as an error, given the directive:


I also tried with




and even by placing those directives in the PropertyGroup node where <TargetFramework> is.

Possible related issues:

I noticed different behaviors depending on:

  • B being referenced as a project in the same solution
  • B being referenced as a NuGet package
  • B being using the classic csproj file format vs the new SDK csproj format

@arialdomartini I don't believe NuGet supports <TreatSpecificWarningsAsErrors/> for its warnings, so this bug would be tracking that request.
