Nuget package with multiple dll fails to reference anything other then the main dll
I have a custom Nuget package, on local machine source.
Contains 2 dlls, one is the main assembly and the other a supporting assembly (
Purpose of Nuget, quick "one stop bucket" for many of our custom dlls we reference from Linqpad.
When calling a method from the main dll, Linqpad fails

In the nuget package, the

When I reference the same Nuget in a new standard XUnit project in VS, all works fine, and CCTools.Gen.dll is being referenced correctly.
In Linqpad running,

Can anyone help please?
Have you perhaps changed the package without incrementing the version number? If so, LINQPad's package cache will still contain metadata applicable to the old version (packages are never supposed to change). Try rebuilding as 1.0.1, or prerelease version such as 1.0.0-test.1.
Thanks Joe. I figured it out. I think the problem is to do with dlls compiled using multiple frameworks in the nuget.
