Windows Store SDK update breaks JSON.Net support?

That or I've done something wrong, I'm quite new at this.

My application was building nicely until I installed the latest SDK update - which apparently I must build against now to submit my app.

Since doing this I've been getting errors like this:

Warning 1 The primary reference "Newtonsoft.Json" could not be resolved because it has an indirect dependency on the framework assembly "System.Runtime, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a" which could not be resolved in the currently targeted framework. ".NETCore,Version=v4.5". To resolve this problem, either remove the reference "Newtonsoft.Json" or retarget your application to a framework version which contains "System.Runtime, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a".

My simplistic take on this is that they have updated the required .Net framework version and JSON.Net doesn't support this yet?? Can anyone think of a work around or am I switching to the Microsoft JSON implementation/waiting for a JSON.Net update?

Thanks in advance.

Sorry all, this turned out to be a bad SDK install.

I re-installed the update and it fixed the issue.
