System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format exception while registering Plugin in Dynamics 365


We might get the below error while trying to register a plugin.




Cause

The plugin project was referring the .NET Framework 4.7.2


And the latest version of Microsoft.CrmSdk.CoreAssemblies – (Sept 29, 2020)

2020-11-10_19-33-39

Resolution –

Changing it to 4.6.2 fixed it.
