How to delete Microsoft .NET Core Runtime (Portable)

.NET Core is a general purpose development platform maintained by Microsoft and the .NET community on GitHub. It is cross-platform, supporting Windows, macOS and Linux, and can be used in device, cloud, and embedded/IoT scenarios.

This package is required to run console applications with the .NET Core runtime. The .NET Core Runtime is installed in the Chocolatey package installation directory, enabling side-by-side install of multiple versions. No shims are generated by default, so this package will also coexist peacefully with the dotnetcore-runtime.install package. To enable side-by-side installs, pass the --sxs argument to Chocolatey when installing this package.

.NET Core supports Windows 7 SP1 / Server 2008 R2 or later. On Windows 7 / Server 2008 R2, security update KB2533623 must be installed, according to documented system requirements.

The package supports the following parameters (--package-parameters, --params):

  • ShimDotnetExe - allows Chocolatey to generate a shim for dotnet.exe, effectively adding dotnet.exe to PATH

Example: cinst -y --params="ShimDotnetExe" dotnetcore-runtime.portable
