Package not working

Jan 26, 2011 at 9:43 AM

I've followed the conventions and have my project laid out like so:





When I inspect the package with 7zip, it has content in the content folder.

Upon clicking on the Install button in the Add Library Package Reference it does nothing.

Also typing install-package EF4Templates in the package console also does nothing, it says installed, but no files show up in my project.

I must have done something goofy with it. Does my package have to include a .exe or a .dll file or something?

I left the package in the gallery so we can test.

I have two questions:

What version of NuGet are you running? (type $host.Version in the console)

What kind of project are you installing the package into? I tried it and it worked fine for me.

It works now, but it's not the same that you had last night before we discussed it.  At the time you didn't have a Content folder, which is why it seemingly did nothing.  Try clearing your IE cache and installing again.

@dfowler I am using the latest version, I downloaded it today.

Yup David, that was it. Thanks again for your help!
