Previously, the project is created with the following command :
dotnet tool install --global dotnet-ef --version 3.0.0-preview4.19216.3

If i want to update it to new version, do I need to uninstall it before rerun the above command with higher version ?

Hi Simon,

Just like .Net, .Net Core multiple versions can coexist. So you don't need to uninstall anything. You will have to modify your project files and possibly you will have to change minor configuration entries but that's all.
