Version Used:

Microsoft Visual Studio Enterprise 2019 Preview
Version 16.0.0 Preview 1.0

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Create a new .NET Core console project
  2. Possibly unrelated, but set language version to 8.0 and enable NRT with <NullableReferenceTypes>true</NullableReferenceTypes> in the csproj.
  3. Build the following code:
using System;

namespace ConsoleApp1
    class Program
        static int Main(string[] args)
            if (args.Length == 0)
                Console.WriteLine("Usage: ConsoleApp1 <text>");
                return -1;

            foreach (var arg in args)
            return 0;

Expected Behavior:

No diagnostics

Actual Behavior:

IDE0051 Private member 'Program.Main' is unused.
