How to make .NET SDK 8.0 show up in Visual Studio 2022 (17.9.6)?

Bert Roos 20 Reputation points

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
