Provide .NET Standard 2.1 compliant nuget for use with Entity Framework 6.4+


We currently are converting our applications to .NET Core.

Microsoft provided a .NET Standard 2.1 compatible version of EF starting with EF 6.3 and continuing with EF 6.4.

The issue however is we are having issues getting your latest EF 6 driver (6.1.1 available from passport advantage site only).

It seems that your 6.1.1 driver is not .NET Standard 2.1 compatible.

We really need your EF 6.1.1 nuget package to be updated for .NET Standard 2.1 so that we can use it in .NET Core applications.

Perhaps there is a way to get it working now?

I have included a sample .NET Core application I am attempting to get working but get this message:

'The store type 'integer' could not be found in the SqlServer provider manifest'

Attached is the sample application I am attempting to get working.


See Case # TS003120433 for more details.
