I have been for the past couple of hours debugging a new error (started after updating some NuGet packages or VS).
Now, after finally being able to see the actual error (Microsoft.NETCore.App 1.1.2 is not compatible with Azure App Service) I got into the actual Startup error I was expecting (invalid connection string), but this screen got my attention:
Now, my questions are:
- Why does Azure use Windows 8? Is there any specific reason why they don't use 8.1, 10 or a Server version?
- Does it make any difference that the app is hosted on the Free plan?
