I do not know what caused the problem, but at a given moment, I got the error:


The Dnx Runtime package needs to be installed. See output window for more details


To fix this problem I entered the following commands in the package manager console:


dnvm upgrade

dnvm upgrade –r CoreClr

dnu restore


Closed all visual studio 2015 instances and opened the project,  now I could build the project wihout errors.
