Studio not seeing activities from .net461 folder, only from lib


Install .nupkg built with framework targeting.

Steps to reproduce:

Create a version of package with .net461 target
Build nupkg out of it

Current Behavior:

Not displayed in activities

Expected Behavior:

Displayed in activities

Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version:

Encountered on: 2017.1.6587 CE
Last stable behavior: N/A
Last stable version: N/A
OS Version: Win10
Others if Relevant: (workflow, logs, .net version, service pack, etc):

See screenshot below:

It’s the same package, I’ve manually changed the version and folder structure and activities are correctly seen.
According to nuget documentation, adding .dll’s directly under lib folder is not supported, but seems that’s the way to go? :confused:

Edit: corrected screenshot (text was missing)

Edit2: It seems to be working correctly with target framework of .Net framework 4.5. Studio itself requires a newer version, so it’s weird it doesn’t support it (or there’s a bug).
