Unable to add Appium .NET driver project in Visual Studio 2017

I’m writing UI tests for a Unity app and would like to use Appium to test areas that AltUnityTester cannot. But when I try to add Appium.Net.csproj to my solution, Visual Studio complains that the operation cannot be completed. The migration log shows the following message: The SDK 'Microsoft.NET.Sdk' specified could not be found.

I’ve installed the appropriate .NET Framework developer packs and the .NET core runtime, but the issue persists. Any ideas?

I managed to resolve the issue. It turns out I also need to install the .NET desktop development workload. I did get another error saying “The current .NET SDK does not support targeting .NET Standard 2.0,” but installing the .NET Core 2.0 SDK for Visual Studio solved the problem.

Any chance the documentation for the Appium .NET driver could be updated?
