I'm getting the error below in DesignTime when I have a view open which has a viewmodel with references to SeriLog.
Could not load file or assembly 'Serilog, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=24c2f752a8e58a10' or one of its dependencies. Het systeem kan het opgegeven bestand niet vinden. myapp C:\snip\Projects\snip\myapp\myapp\Views\MyViews\MyView.xaml
The dutch string translated to English: "The system can't find the file"
The project compiles and runs fine, but I'd like an error-free design-time experience. Right now this error breaks my design-time project code in VS2017. What can I do to fix this error?
- Removing the serilog folder from %userprofile%.nuget and rebuilding
- Cleaning the project folder bin\ and obj\ folder
- Rebuilding the project
- Restarting VS2017
- Rebooting computer
- Another workstation shows the same error
- Compiling serilog and sink myself on netcore1.6 target
I'm building an UWP app targeting the anniversary edition 14393 framework.
project.json serilog references:
"Serilog": "2.4.0", "Serilog.Sinks.RollingFile": "3.3.0",
Sample VS project which replicates the issue
I have created a blank Template10 project with mvvm-light viewmodel on DetailPage.xaml for which the serilog error is shown.

I think you are using higher .net framework version. I also faced same problem earlier in asp.net mvc project in vs2017, but my problem is resolved when i changed my target .net framework version to lower one.
