How To Install .NET Core 2

This blog demonstrates, how to install .NET Core.

The release of .NET Core has been officially announced here. I looked for a way to update .NET Core to version 2.0 as I could see it was not installed on my workstation. As shown in Figure 1, I only had version 1.0 and 1.1 installed.

The easiest way I found to do by accomplishing the task was to first upgrade my version of Visual Studio from the version I had, see Image 2, where it shows I had version 15.0 and that there is a new version 15.3 which is ready for download and installation.

Go to Tools >> Extensions and Updates >> Product Updates and click Update.

Close all visual studio applications and let the updated install. Once installed then you can see all versions.
