C++/CLI link error vs 2019: missing mscoree.lib when compiling for win arm64

Hichem 26 Reputation points


When trying to compile my C++/CLI project targetting ARM64, I'm getting the following error: LINK : fatal error LNK1104: cannot open file 'MSCOREE.lib'
I checked the library path, the project is trying to get this lib from: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\NETFXSDK\4.8\lib\um\arm64", but this path doesn't exist. I only have arm, x64 and x86. I tried to install other .Net FW SDK version (4.7.2, 4.7.1, 4.61) and all have the same problem.
Please can you tell me how can I have a good sdk with all architectures correctly installed?

    The .NET Framework does not natively support ARM64 and there are no plans to add this support. Our recommendation is to consider moving up to .NET Core if you need ARM64 support.

    I suggest you could try to use .NET 5 to instead of .net framework.

    For more details I suggest you could refer to the links:
