Problem

You need to create a console application using the latest .Net Core version. In this case the assemblies for WPF or WinForms would not work because they depend on assemblies available in the Desktop compatibility pack. You may get an exception that the PresentationCore or System.Windows.Size assemblies are missing as well.
