NuGet.Core.dll getting included in bin deploy VS2010 SP1

Mar 25, 2011 at 2:23 AM

When running the "Add Deployable Dependencies..." context menu option on an MVC3 project in Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 the dll NuGet.Core.dll is getting included in the _bin_deployableDependencies directory in the project. I am assuming this is not desired since that dll is not needed at the published application level. Am I correct? Do I need to do something to stop this from happening or is this something that needs to be updated in NuGet?

This occurs with Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 installed and NuGet Package Manager Version

You can see the output in a screenshot in my article on using the VS2010 SP1 Add Deployable Dependencies at

You don't need to check ASP.NET Web Pages with Razor Syntax. That option is for the simple inline-pages framework. If you're just building an ASP.NET MVC application, only check the ASP.NET MVC option.
