LINQPad 6 RC1 on .NET Core RC1

Hey, I just saw that there is a release candidate available. So I downloaded the setup from the website and installed it. However, LINQPad6 doesn’t run.

I thought that I might have to update the .NET Core runtime to make sure that it works correctly, so I upgraded from preview9 to RC1 but it still doesn’t work.

When I run the „Download .NET Core 3“ application, then it tells me that I have 3.0.0-rc1-19456-20 installed (which is correct). When I then click on “Launch LINQPad”, I get the following error:

Error that LINQPad cannot find the Microsoft.WindowsDesktop.App 3.0.0 framework

Apparently, LINQPad looks for a release version of 3.0.0 and fails.

I still had a LINQPad 6 beta download around, so I tried to run that and it worked just fine. It also updated automatically to v6.0.31:

LINQPad beta version from the about dialog

Am I missing something or is RC1 simply not ready for a non-final release of .NET Core 3.0?
