Will NuGet install of EntityFramework affect .NET Framework?

Will NuGet install of EntityFramework 4.2 only add the package to a particular Solution, or will it affect .NET Framework on the PC?  (I need to be sure if I install it, it does not affect other solution/projects using 4.1)

No, it won't affect your .net framework. All the downloaded files are local to your solution; nuget does not modify any system resources. Go ahead and install it.

Hello,

I work for Microsoft on the Entity Framework team. I just happend to notice you're question here. :) The NuGet package will just install EntityFramework.dll into the targeted project -- it will not affect other projects using the Entity Framework.
