VS 2022 will not install MongoDB C# Driver 2.23.1 targeting .Net 4.8

We have migrated our code base to a new development system and using VS 2022 we cannot get the Nuget packages for the C# Driver to install. We have been targeting .Net 4.8 Framework for some time and don’t understand where the issue is as the documentation clearly states it supports this framework version.

NU1202: Package MongoDB.Bson 2.23.1 is not compatible with net48 (.NETFramework,Version=v4.8) / win-x86. Package MongoDB.Bson 2.23.1 does not support any target frameworks.
NU1202: Package MongoDB.Driver.Core 2.23.1 is not compatible with net48 (.NETFramework,Version=v4.8) / win-x86. Package MongoDB.Driver.Core 2.23.1 does not support any target frameworks.

Apparently my new installation has issues with Nuget cache. I was able to delete the existing MongoDB package references in the solutions ‘packages’ folder and attempt to re-add the MongoDB references, but it now fails on the System.Text.Encoding.CodePages nuget 6.0 refs. Removing this cache does not resolve the issue.

More discovery to go…
