Describe the bug

When trying to build a project without any workloads for .NET Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) , the build process fails with an error related to “maui-tizen” even though it is not required for the current project.

To Reproduce

  • Create a new project in .NET MAUI that does not require maui-tizen workload.
  • Attempt to build the project without maui workload installed
  • Observe that the build process fails with an error related to “maui-tizen” even though it is not necessary for the project.


Exceptions (if any)

To build this project, the following workloads must be installed: maui-tizen
To install these workloads, run the following command: dotnet workload restore

binlog :

The SDK doesn’t know which workload you need, just which workload packs are missing. There can be multiple workloads that would supply those packs. In this case it looks like either the Tizen or Maui workloads would install the packs that are needed, but the Tizen workload would overall install fewer additional packs, so it suggests that one.

What i don’t understand is that if i m not building for that workload, why would it throw?! if i just need Microsoft.Maui.Sdk.net7 and Microsoft.Maui.Resizetizer.Sdk for the other workloads that i specify on my csproj.
