Integration between nuget.exe and nuget vs plugin

Jul 5, 2011 at 5:15 AM

My team is trying to use the Nuget + teamcity + svn combo for our automatic build and deployment. One of the issue I have is with trying to install and update nuget package through commandline. I know we can perform the following command to update/install nuget package

nuget install <package name> -Source <local repo>

nuget update <solution name> -Source <local repo>

after running the above, the package was installed but when checking the installed packages within visual studio nuget plugin, it still in not installed state and trying to install it with get an error saying its installed already. Are there anyway to keep the packages in syn between nuget.exe and nuget vs plugin?

Thank you.

nuget.exe currently doesn't support installing packages into projects. See this post for some discussion on this. After reading this, can you explain the scenario where you need to install a package from the command line? We have not yet encountered a compelling scenario (which doesn't mean it doesn't exist).
