Hello everyone!! I am a junior programmer trying to make a project in .NET MAUI, but when it comes to scaffolding my database, I get the following error:

The specified deps.json [C:\Users\Developer\source\repos\MauiTest7\MauiTest7\bin\Debug\net7.0-android\MauiTest7.deps.json] does not exist

I have tried everything, rebuild project, clean, changing from version 7.0 to 8.0 and nothing.

I have pushed ChatGPT to the limit and it hasn't solved anything for me. I've been dealing with this for +5 hours and I've seen many forums but nothing has managed to solve the problem for me.

I'm a little desperate now, because I don't know what to do anymore and that's why I come to this forum. I hope someone can help me.

Thanks a lot!

    hello :),

    I face the same issue as you. I'm not sure if what I'm saying is 100% correct or not. This is my first post, and I'm also a junior. However, I believe Maui doesn't create a deps.json file because it targets framework net8.0-ios/android, etc but not net8.0. At least, that's how I perceive it.

    Additionally, if I'm not mistaken, the official documentation suggests using sqlite-net-pcl.

    Furthermore, I'm not certain if this is feasible, but perhaps we could work around the migration generation by using another project, such as a console project, solely for the execution context?

    Getting same trouble after moving project to new folder.

    solved it by removing all /bin / obj /.vs folders.

    Rebuild all
