.Net Framework 4.5.1 and Kentor.OwinCookieSaver

UPDATE Oct 15th, 2020 by Nico Sabena (Auth0)

Auth0’s quickstarts and samples no longer use the Kentor.OwinCookieSaver package to work around the problem with cookies and Katana/OWIN. Instead, we are using the SystemWebCookieManager as a workaround recommended by Microsoft.

I am following the instructions for

When I try it install Kentor.OwinCookieSaver I get

Is there an alternative?

Hi @mark.perry

Can you try targetting 4.5.2 instead?
