Update to the latest Visual Studio (currently: Visual Studio 2017).

Ensure that all the F# and .NET Core components are installed (found in the VS installer under "Individual Components).

In my case it was the wrong compiler, using the VS2017 instead of VS2015 did the trick - but I downloaded .net core and .net framework before that, that did not work (properly because the old compiler was still selected automatically - but can't say for sure)
