After installing the .NET 6 SDK you can confirm that it was successfully installed and recognized by running the following command:
You should get output like this:
Here you can see I am running preview 7.
If you scroll down a bit you should see a list of the installed SDKs and runtimes.
If the info command does not report the latest SDK that you have just installed, there are two possibilities:
- There is a
global.jsonfile in the current folder, or a parent folder that is fixing the .NET version
You are using a 64 bit machine but you have installed the x86 version of the SDK instead of the x64.
If you install the x86 version (as I had) on a 64 bit machine it will not be recognized
