I'm running Visual Studio 2022 (17.9.6) on Windows 11 and have .NET SDK 8.0 installed, but Visual Studio does not list it:

It is installed, see below:

I had Visual Studio 2022 (17.7) installed. Then installed .NET SDK 8 and upgraded VS to 17.9.6. It still didn't show up. Then I uninstalled the SDK and reinstalled it. It still didn't show up.

Then I uninstalled Visual Studio, rebooted and installed Visual Studio again. It still does not show up.

What can I do to fix this?

    vs2022 17.8 added .net 8 support which included new project templates that support .net 8. which project template are you using? not all have been updated to support .net 8.

    to check the .net 8 templates have been added, create a new console app for windows, linux and macOs and see if .net 8 is available. if it is all is installed correctly.

    you can force install template:

    > devenv /installvstemplates
