    From this doc:Upgrading .NET MAUI from .NET 7 to .NET 8

    To upgrade from .NET 7 to 8:

    • Install .NET 8 and the .NET MAUI workload with Visual Studio 17.8+, or with the standalone installer and dotnet workload install maui command.
    • Change your target framework references from net7.0-* to net8.0-*

    No need to remove .NET 7 runtime or SDK.

    Best Regards,
