Hi,

after branching in TFS 2012, and then opening the new solution, many of the references can't be found.  What do I need to do to restore all of the missing references again?

 

Thanks.

If I copy the packages folder from my old solution's root directory to the new solutions root directory, then it solves the problem.  Shouldn't NUGET do this automagically though?

Hi Matt,

Are you using the Package Restore feature described at http://docs.nuget.org/docs/Workflows/Using-NuGet-without-committing-packages?

Thanks,
