Error when opening package manager console

Feb 20, 2012 at 4:41 AM

Getting this whenever i open the package manager console:


Type 'get-help NuGet' to see all available NuGet commands.
Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.
Parameter name: zipFileName


Any idea where to start looking? I uninstalled and reinstalled nuget, no change.

I'm trying to repro the error, I would need some additional info.

Could you share your NuGet version (Tools->Extension Manager-Nuget Package Manager),
also do you have any other VS Extensions installed ?

When you first see the error, can you type:




and post it here?

Scratch that, turns out an external process had corrupted the packages folder. Restoring that folder from backup resolved the issues.
