Hi, we have a solution built with Visual Studio 2015, with a ASP.Net Core (aka ASP.Net 5) project with .Net Framework 4.5.2 (we could have chosen 4.6 instead, but not relevant for this issue).
Please observe - not a true .Net CORE project, just ASP.Net CORE built on .Net Framework! (hence no csproj file, only project.json/xproj)
This ASP.Net (WebAPI) project references class library projects also built Entity Framework 4.5.2. The later fact forced us to use nuget restore instead of dotnet restore as indicated by hundreds of post on that specific issue. All well, this package restore part works now it seems.
However - how do we build our ASP.Net CORE project without having to install the entire Visual Studio 2015 on the build server? Is it even possible? MSBuild may not be used since it is an xproj/project.json based project.
Please any advice would be greatly appreciated, this is killing us slowly...
