Restore fails for 'dotnet new -l F#' created project

See original GitHub issue

Steps to reproduce

I am validating a tool called dotnet watch for the next release and as part of it, I would like to test it with a non-C# based project. I tried doing a dotnet new -l F# but the restore fails.

Expected behavior

Restore succeeds and able to run dotnet run successfully

Actual behavior

Errors in C:\temp\contoso\project.json
    Unable to resolve 'Microsoft.NETCore.App (>= 1.0.0-rc2-3002677)' for '.NETCoreApp,Version=v1.0'.

Add this:

<add key="dotnet-core" value="" />

To the NuGet.config you had earlier and give it a try.

I’m going to assume that the [||] is an intended output of the app. If we’re seeing that dotnet run is appending a funny string to the output then please open another issue to track 😃
