Rider stuck on "Toolset and Build" loading

I'm trying to connect Rider to WSL.

First problem that Riders seems to be unable to resolve dotnet version managed by asdf, but when I try to specify path in settings, it is getting stuck forever in that “loading” screen when trying to open “Toolset and build”.

Running application from terminal - “dotnet watch” works.

But truying to run it by Rider gives following error -

There could be some compatibility problems with the dotnet SDK managed by asdf. Please refer to this answer in the existing thread.

Basically, dotnet allows to install multiple SDK versions on a same machine, and usually it's specified in global.json

For the settings keep loading issue in the screenshot, it's a known issue in the EAP version.

We would appreciate it if you would upvote it and click Watch to monitor the status.


thank you for the reply!

I'm following the issue now.

When settings will work I will check does it allow me to specify path to dotnet managed by asdf there.

I have .tool-versions file to manage dotnet version, but I ofc ca cnreate global.json if it will help rider somehow
