Are there issues with the Power Tools under VS 2019? After designing the Entity and selecting "Generate", there is a pause in which a CMD window appears very shortly, then nothing else happens. No files have been added to the solution.

    By running the RAD Tool from the command line, I could see a message that .net core 2.2 is not installed (VS 2019 apparently doesn't install this version).

    Go to this page:

    Select .NET Core 2.2 "x64 Runtime" (no need to install the SDK, since you only need to get the RAD Tool running).

    Once installed (no reboot necessary) everything runs normally!

    Regards, and thanks for the great product (developing my second ZERO project now), Bob

    I don't understand why this message is not shown in the RAD Tool log file (Logs.txt)? I spent a good bit of time trying different things and then finally searched this forum and found this post. Seems like if the .NET Core 2.2 runtime is missing, that should be validated when installing the RAD tools OR, at least, should throw an error in the RAD Tool log file when trying to generate. This is all I get in the Logs.txt file:

    DEBUG 2020-12-23 12:42:34,934 [1 ] lVisualStudioExtension.AspNetZeroRadTool - Menu item clicked with params > loadFromJson: False, loadFromDatabase: False, showAboutForm: False DEBUG 2020-12-23 12:46:30,063 [1 ] dioExtension.Dialogs.EntityGeneratorForm - Generate entity started. DEBUG 2020-12-23 12:46:30,813 [1 ] dioExtension.Dialogs.EntityGeneratorForm - Entity successfully generated.

    Not useful at all to troubleshooting this problem.
