.NET Core SDK
This repo contains the source code for the cross-platform .NET Core SDK. It aggregates the .NET Toolchain, the .NET Core runtime, the templates, and the .NET Core Windows Desktop runtime. It produces zip, tarballs, and native packages for various supported platforms.
Looking for released versions of the .NET Core tooling?
Download released versions of the .NET Core tools (CLI, MSBuild and the new csproj) at https://dot.net/core.
Found an issue?
You can consult the Documents Index for the CLI repo to find out current issues, see workarounds, and to see how to file new issues.
The repository contains native code project required for the Windows installer. If you intend to build it locally on Windows, you will need to ensure that you have the following items installed.
- Install CMAKE 126.96.36.199 or later
- Install MSVC Build tools for x86/x64/arm64, v14.28-16.9
Installers and Binaries
You can download the .NET Core SDK as either an installer (MSI, PKG) or a zip (zip, tar.gz). The .NET Core SDK contains both the .NET Core runtime and CLI tools.
Note: Be aware that the following installers are the latest bits. If you want to install the latest released versions, check out the preceding section. With development builds, internal NuGet feeds are necessary for some scenarios (for example, to acquire the runtime pack for self-contained apps). You can use the following NuGet.config to configure these feeds. See the following document Configuring NuGet behavior for more information on where to modify your NuGet.config to apply the changes.
For .NET 6 builds
<configuration> <packageSources> <add key="dotnet6" value="https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/dnceng/public/_packaging/dotnet6/nuget/v3/index.json" /> </packageSources> </configuration>
Note: that you may need to add the dotnet5 feed for a short period of time while .NET transitions to .NET 6
For .NET 5 builds
<configuration> <packageSources> <add key="dotnet5" value="https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/dnceng/public/_packaging/dotnet5/nuget/v3/index.json" /> </packageSources> </configuration>
For .NET 3.1 builds
<configuration> <packageSources> <add key="dotnet3.1" value="https://pkgs.dev.azure.com/dnceng/public/_packaging/dotnet3.1/nuget/v3/index.json" /> </packageSources> </configuration>

1: Our Debian packages are put together slightly differently than the other OS specific installers. Instead of combining everything, we have separate component packages that depend on each other. If you're installing the SDK from the .deb file (via dpkg or similar), then you'll need to install the corresponding dependencies first:
