I'm trying to build our Commerce Engine project in VSTS, but restoring packages is failing with:

Package Sitecore.Framework.Pipelines 4.0.1 is not compatible with net462 (.NETFramework,Version=v4.6.2) / win7-x64. Package Sitecore.Framework.Pipelines 4.0.1 supports: netstandard2.0 (.NETStandard,Version=v2.0)

(The error appears for every Microsoft.AspNetCore.* and Sitecore.Framework.* package that's referenced)

The NuGet task doesn't support the newer Target Framework Monikor mappings required to pull this off. Use the ".NET Core" task and it will build as expected.


Add a NuGet Tool Installer task before your NuGet restore task, which will force the use of the latest version of NuGet (currently 4.3.0). I had the same issue and this resolved it.
