So I recently ran into this error where the latest bits could not load Microsoft.Dnx.Host.Clr here is what I did to fix it.

  • Followed the instructions from the beta7 announcements
    • Installed the latest web tools warning: there are multiple MSI’s in that link. Install the WebToolsExtensions
  • Updated my runtime dnvm upgrade -u -r clr
  • Made sure my project was set to use the latest runtime
  • Updated my nuget packages dnu restore

Afterwards everything seemed to work.
