Hello all,

I was not sure who was the user in below .net conf event for upgrade assistant. So mentioned with wild guess. Please don't mind if any of you mentioned above are not part of that event host and presenter.

Event link:


So if anyone can answer my question below ,

In the event presenter video at time 15:28 it is mentioned about command execution but have not specified which keyword has been entered or just pressed enter button?

Because for me through the package manager console i am trying to run that upgrade command console is still seems in execution mode and i am not able to do neither input key or press enter button for more than 3-4 hours.

Any help is greatly appreciated 264316-img-20221125-220420-305.jpg.

    Hi @Sanjay Narod ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    You can install the .NET Upgrade Assistant tool from Package Manager Console.

    If you want to run the tool, please open a Command Prompt terminal and run the following command:
    upgrade-assistant upgrade <Path to csproj or sln to upgrade>

    Then, just press “Enter” to do the steps.
