Visual Studio 2017 .Net Core Web/API Project Error

Since last week I was trying to fix one following issue coming whenever I ran my any of .Net Core API and Web project.


My Visual Studio 2017 was showing “Start” option only. After numerous try I found one very helpful blog here which solved my issue.


In Visual Studio go to Tools -> Extensions and Updates I disabled the “Arduino GDB for Visual Micro 2017” extension.

In my case “Arduino GDB for Visual Micro 2017” was causing the issue. If you are not using it then you may try some other available options.

Delete azure media services asset


I am going to show you how to delete a asset from Azure Media Services.

Step 1 : Connect to media services context.

CloudMediaContext _context = new CloudMediaContext(_accountName, _accountKey);

Step 2 : Get the assest from the media context. We will pass the asset name to get and delete the asset.

string assetName = "myasset_mp4";

IAsset assetToDelete = GetAsset(assetName);

//Now delete the asset

// Verify asset deletion
if (GetAsset(asset.Name) == null)
Console.WriteLine("Deleted the Asset.");

Step 3 : GetAsset function.

private IAsset GetAsset(string assetName)
// LINQ Select query to get an asset.
var assetInstance =
from a in _context.Assets
where a.Name == assetName
select a;

// Reference the asset as an IAsset.
IAsset asset = assetInstance.FirstOrDefault();

return asset;
