Nuget problems

    Question

  • I've been having a heck of a time using Nuget.

    For example. If I download the OnDrive Explorer example from...

       https://github.com/OneDrive/onedrive-explorer-win

    It builds just fine on my VS 2013 Update 4

    But let's say that I...

    1. try to create a new project (Universal Blank App for example)

    2. then copy the OneDriveSDK project directory to the new solution.

    3. I then "add Existing Project". 

    4. I then "Enable NuGet package Restore" before building.

    5. I then build.

    6. I then get the infamous..

        Error 1 This project references NuGet package(s) that are missing on this computer.

        Enable NuGet Package Restore to download them. 
        For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=317567."

    7. I then try lots of stuff to extricate me from this problem but to no avail.

    I see people complaining about similar issues 1-2 years ago.  Am I missing
    something?  This is just one example.  I have had lots of similar problems
    with other projects.


    p.s. In case it might be helpful, I am including the detailed version information
    in the VS2013 about box below...

  • Hi jgren,

    It seems that it is not the correct forum for this issue.

    Based on the Nuget site here:

    https://www.nuget.org/policies/Contact

    I think you could get the support site for the Nuget issue.

  • Hi jgren,

    Thanks for your friendly response.

    Sometimes we provide some useful information after we/other members research about this kind of issues even if we are not the NuGet experts.

    About this issue, I doubt that the real issue would be related to the "NuGet package Restore", I also found some document which shared us the right way to restore NuGet package here:

    http://blog.davidebbo.com/2014/01/the-right-way-to-restore-nuget-packages.html

    Maybe you could get useful information. But if still no help, to really repro and help you resolve this issue, I suggest you discuss this issue with NuGet experts. Thanks for your understanding.

    Sincerely,

    Jack

  • Thanks for your response.  I'll try on that forum as well.

    However, I do see many Nuget/VS issues addressed in this forum and

    the error message is from Microsoft Visual Studio and from NuGet and the issue

    is keeping me from using VS on the project at all.
