I've downloaded the code for both ver. 2.2 and master and compiled them in VS2012
without any modification at OS windows 7 x64 / windows 2008 r2 x64 enviroment and finished  successfully
After installing on VS2010 and clicking:
Tools->Library Package Manager->Package Manager Settings or
Tools->Library Package Manager->Package Manager Console

I'm getting the following exception on debug mode:

Invalid Cast Exception -
Unable to cast object of type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.ComponentModelHost.ComponentModel' to type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.ComponentModelHost.IComponentModel'.

on the code:

private IPackageRestoreManager PackageRestoreManager

                if (_packageRestoreManager == null)
                    _packageRestoreManager = ServiceLocator.GetInstance<IPackageRestoreManager>(); //Throws exception
                    Debug.Assert(_packageRestoreManager != null);
                return _packageRestoreManager;

when i'm not debugging (in visual studio 2010) I get the following message box:

The 'NuGet.Tools.NuGetPackage, NuGet.Tools, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null' package did not load correctly.
The problem may have been caused by a configuration change or by the installation of another extension. You can get more information by running the application together with the /log parameter on the command line, and then examining the file C:\Users\fluman\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\ActivityLog.xml'.

I've figure up that i need to compile on Windows (In my case windows XP) with only VS2010 installed and then the VisualStudioAddIn
Is working on VS2010 with no exceptions

Now my problem is how I can compile the AddIn to work for any platform (VS2012 , VS2010) with only one version of NuGet.Tools.vsix?

I have the same issue. I need to create one addin for all versions like the one you can download on the site..

I you compile the code in VS 2010, it will work with both VS 2010 and VS 2012
