Error referencing an ef core assembly: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Extensions.Depe...

edited June 28
I'm trying to use an ef core 1.1 project that I created in VS2017.
I add a connection, select the ef core 1.1 driver (version,
enter the path to my assembly, choose the dbcontext, select the option for a constructor that accepts the connection string
(I added such a constructor to my dbcontext, as suggested here).
When I test the connection, I get the following error:
Error Testing EF7 Connection: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.Extensions.DependencyInjection.Abstractions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=adb9793829ddae60' or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131040)
I've just started using LINQPad, I hope I've done everything right.
In order to isolate the problem, I've created a new project in VS2017 - with the "ASP.NET Core Web Application (.Net Framework) - ASP.NET Core 1.1" Template,
created the dbcontext & models from my Sql Server DB with the DB-first approach,
and compiled the project.
Trying to connect LINQPad to through the created assembly still gives the same error.
