Nuget.exe prompting for credentials

Apr 12, 2012 at 2:07 PM

I'm trying to get some NuGet functionality working in a firewalled/sandboxed environment. When I do *anything* with NuGet.exe - the first thing it does is prompt for use "Username:" and "Password:". I assume this was for the firewall/proxy server, as it might be trying to get out over the Internet to perhaps update itself. Hopefully, it's not trying to log into a repository, because I'm explicitly trying to not use the public repository.

Anyone know what is going on here? When I run nuget.exe, I need it to not try to go out to the network, I just want to use it as a local utility for creating packages.

What command causes it to prompt you for your credentials? Install \ Push \ List should if you are working with sources outside your network, the rest shouldn't.

If you aren't sure what sources are listed, run .\nuget.exe sources

EVERYTHING I do, prompts:

C:\NuGet>nuget sources

It looks like you are running the bootstrapper for the executable rather than the exe itself. Once it bootstraps itself by downloading the full exe, it wouldn't try and do this again

Is the ACTUAL executable available for download anywhere? I downloaded that from the main nuget.exe site - I didn't see any alternative downloads. Any ideas?

Probably the easiest way to do this is to get the CI bits - Login as guest and pick up the executable from 1.8 > Artifacts > Console > NuGet.exe
