Installing Gepsio via Nuget?

Mar 18, 2014 at 9:02 AM
Has anyone else tried this?
Didn't work for me, so just trying to figure out if it's me, or a real problem.

Hi Mark,

What errors do you see when you try to grab Gepsio via NuGet?

It appears to install, but no reference is added to the project, and the package manager UI doesn't show it as installed.
I think the .dll just needs to be in a lib folder in the nupkg.

Easier to show you. Watch:

I am using VS2013.

I think you just need a new version of nuget.exe.

nuget pack JeffFerguson.Gepsio.csproj

produces a nupkg with a lib folder .

Fair enough, Mark. Please let me know what happens after you install the latest version of NuGet.

Sorry for the confusion. You have to publish (push) the package up as I don't have your API keys! I

I don't know what script/commands you used previously, but with the latest nuget it should be:
nuget pack <project-name>
nugget publish <nupkg name>
and your done.

Hi Mark,

I believe that the publication has already taken place. According to the page at, the latest CTP has been downloaded 144 times through NuGet (and the previous CTP had been downloaded 267 times), so I had been under the impression that it has been working for others. I will double check.

And probably 50 of that 144 is me J

I don’t think the issue is with the publish but in how the nupkg is built. As I showed on the video, the lib folder is missing which is why the reference doesn’t get added.

The .dll is still extracted, so people can manually add a reference to it, but the whole point of Nuget is to make things super easy.

Happy to walk thru it in a screen share, etc.

Thanks, Mark! I'll double check.

Just to let you both know, I have just tried this on a clean vs2013 machine in a sample console app, and the package installed successfully but no reference was added.

Thank you both for the reports! I have been using an app called the NuGet Package Manager to make the Gepsio NuGet package. I must be missing something. I will start looking around to see what I missed. I appreciate the reports!
