Are .NET Core Console Apps Supported?

I've been trying both the dll and standalone exe forms of my .NET core console app, to no success. Is there a recommended way to run .NET core console apps? If not, I might be able to switch it to .NET Framework, which I know works, but I figured I would check first.

    Standalone .NET Core console apps should actually work! What issues did you see? I noticed that the app associated with your account has still been deployed and has a background worker, so perhaps you figured this out in the meantime?

    Just a few minutes ago I actually managed to resolve the issue. Turned out I needed to add "<CopyLocalLockFileAssemblies>true</CopyLocalLockFileAssemblies>" to my .csproj file in order for it to copy over the NuGet package DLLs my app needed. Thanks for your response, seeing that core console apps should work made me take the second look at the issue that I needed to get it fixed.

    Best regards,
