As you may know the official release of .NET 8 is around the corner! It is expected to ship tomorrow (November 14th 2024). We plan to release a new update of Radzen Blazor Studio with official support for .NET 8 shortly after - we just need to update the references and conduct internal tests.
Here is what's new:
New .NET 8 specific application type - Blazor Web Application. It allows to pick interactivity mode - server, web assembly or auto (both).
Radzen Blazor Studio would require .NET 8 SDK to be installed on your machine. This is important: Radzen Blazor Studio won't start if you get the new version via auto update and don't have .NET 8 installed. The solution is simple - just download and install the .NET 8 SDK for your OS. It is backwards compatible with .NET 7 so your existing applications will continue to work as expected. If you are not ready to install .NET 8 yet just skip the autoupdate by clicking the Not now button.

We are currently running latest .NET 8 SDK with current (pre .NET 8) Radzen Blazor Studio without any issues. We have been doing this for months. Maybe Visual Studio is the culprit and removes the .NET 7 SDK.
As I said we are have been using current official RBS with .NET 8 for a couple of months now. It will work as long as you also have .NET 7 SDK installed.
If you are asking for the ability to create .NET 8 Blazor Web applications - you will have to wait for the next release then. Until then I suggest checking how the new Blazor rendering modes work as it catches a lot of developers by surprise: ASP.NET Core Blazor render modes | Microsoft Learn
Learned of a correction if RBS code doesn't run in VS 2022 17.8.
I found that in the Installer, the checkmarks for .net6 , net7 webassembly buildtools were left off, which checked and updated. 17.8 works fine again on RBS ciode,
