I just started reading a book on ASP.NET Core MVC.  While creating my first project I came across a problem.

When I right click the controller Folder in my project and select Add->Controller->MVC Controller-Empty then name the controller and click ADD. A processing Window pops up and gets stuck on "Scaffolding.. Generating Code".

I can't seem to add any controllers using this method and was wondering if someone might know why?

Update 4/1/2020
I added a NuGet Package named "Microsoft.VisualStudio.Web.CodeGenerators.Mvc.  Still no luck.
