Unable to Decompile .NET Standard Assemblies


I've just upgraded to v10 and I still can't decompile the .NET Standard system libraries from MS. For example, if I use F12 on a System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex call in my .NET Framework library I see the inner workings of the Regex class.

However, if I F12 on a System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex call in the .NET Standard version of my library I just see the method signature and there there is no implementation of the method underneath it.

Please can you let me know how can I use .NET Reflector to view the internals of .NET Standard assemblies from within VS?

I guess this may be impossible since .NET Standard is intended as an interface specification rather than a realisation. If this is the case, I would have expected lack of support for .NET Standard  to be clearer on the Redgate web site, because I did look for mention of this before I purchased the upgrade.

Thanks, Peter
