Getting error while running scan for dotnet framework 4.7.1

Hi There,

I have installed fortify HPE_Security_Fortify_SCA_and_Apps_17.20_Windows and using visual studio plugin for 2017. I have created a sample console application in dotnet framework 4.7.1. I am getting the following error (however I have tried same sample application in framework 4.6, 4.6.1, 4.6.2 and scan is working fine)-

Fortify SCA...

Rolling back to 4.5.1 just for analysis sometimes works.


-    <TargetFrameworkVersion>v4.7.1</TargetFrameworkVersion>
+    <TargetFrameworkVersion>v4.5.1</TargetFrameworkVersion>



I have tried fortify 18.10. And its supported with dotnet framework 4.7.1.
