I downloaded nuget.exe and I have tried the install. I would like to target a visual studio project or solution on the command line outside of Visual Studio. It is simply downloading the package with a version number on the end. MyOutputDirectory is the output directory which has a Visual studio solution there.

nuget install nhibernate -o MyOutputDirectory

Thanks,
Greg

Okay let's try again :)

What you describe is not currently supported. This post describes why.

Russ,

Okay, no problem. I am building a code generator that will support NuGet. It looks like I will be doing all this logic myself after the nuget.exe downloads the files. Thanks for your help.
