Fix regression in CryptoHashProvider



Just upgraded to 1.8 and am getting the error below when attempting to install the nunit package. Does any one know the cause of this. Looks like im not the only person getting this error:

Install-Package : The specified cryptographic algorithm is not supported on this platform.
At line:1 char:16
+ Install-Package <<<< NUnit -ProjectName MyProject
&#43; CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [Install-Package], PlatformNotSupportedException
&#43; FullyQualifiedErrorId : NuGetCmdletUnhandledException,NuGet.PowerShell.Commands.InstallPackageCommand
I am on Windows XP SP 3.

Thanks in advance,

  • NuGet package verification works on XP and other OSes
  • when FIPS is enabled package verification works on 2003+
    • Note: this fails in XP,m the CryptoServiceProviders method isn't supported in XP.
