I recently had this issue where i was getting an error message complaining that it couldn't find the assets file


I searched for a solution and people were saying I needed to use dotnet resore but that didn't solve anything

There was something causing the issues. It was the space in the git repository name which was coming through as %20 when it was cloned into windows.

This was causing confusion because in some cases it was recognised as a space and some it was just recognised as the characters %20.

So the fix was to rename the repository to take the %20 out of the name.

You might get away with just renaming the folder on your machine to take the %20 out of the name.
