Package is not compatible with net452, but supports net45

See original GitHub issue

Steps to reproduce

Added AutoMapper 5.0.2 package to my project. The restore fails with the error AutoMapper 5.0.2 is not compatible with net452.

Expected behavior

It should restore. I understand net45 === net452.

Actual behavior

Errors in C:\Source\MyWebApi\project.json
    Package AutoMapper 5.0.2 is not compatible with net452 (.NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2). Package AutoMapper 5.0.2 supports:
      - net45 (.NETFramework,Version=v4.5)
      - netstandard1.1 (.NETStandard,Version=v1.1)
      - netstandard1.3 (.NETStandard,Version=v1.3)
    One or more packages are incompatible with .NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2.

NuGet Config files used:

Feeds used:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\NuGetPackages\

Environment data

dotnet --info output:

.NET Command Line Tools (1.0.0-preview2-003121)

Product Information:
 Version:            1.0.0-preview2-003121
 Commit SHA-1 hash:  1e9d529bc5

Runtime Environment:
 OS Name:     Windows
 OS Version:  10.0.14393
 OS Platform: Windows
 RID:         win10-x64

Steps taken

Frustratingly, it restores and builds on the hosted VSTS agent and on another laptop. It is something wrong with local installation, however can’t determine the cause.

Experiencing similar issue over here. Unity.Practices should be compatible with .net 4.6.2 right? Suddenly it is not. Weird.
