Cannot access Local Feed Server using latest version of Package Explorer

I just started up my Package explorer and it downloaded the latest version When I attempt to connect to my local feed server I get a message that "An error occured while processing this request."  The previous version worked fine.  The web service for my local feed was built some time back from the latest source code.

Do I need to get the latest source code and rebuild the service?


Thanks, Eric

Yes, please try building the latest source code and let me know. Btw, you don't need to build from the source code manually. We publish it as a nuget package called "NuGet.Server". You can just install that package and you'll have a nuget server ready.

Also, see what is returned from the server through Fiddler.

I have the downloaded the package via package explorer, but how do I take the server and drop in in my IIS site?  I understand how to import into a project, but I'm unclear on how to dump the contents to a folder so I can copy it to my IIS site location

Have you read Phil's blog on this subject?

It has taken me a little bit to get back to this, but I have downloaded the NuGet server from Nuget and built and ran from within VS on my local host.  I can see the packages via the browser.  When I attempt to connect to this feed server via package explorer (, I get the error message "An error occurred while processing thsi request".

I can access the localhost local feed server from the Add Library Package Reference in VS.

I'll investigate this.
