Error when opening package manager console

Feb 20, 2012 at 3:41 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
PM> 

"

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

Hi,

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 ?

thanks,

When you first see the error, can you type:

 

$error[0].StackTrace

 

and post it here?

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