The most handy little tool ever.

What I also like is it's like a market place where you get an overview of what's out there, most popular, I get to try new things too.

Thanks for this wonderful tool

Great idea to solve the problem of installing pre-requisites on developer PCs. Removes the barrier to using non-standard components. Package Manager idea is clearly taken from the Linux world, probably the only good part of that, LOL. Good to see this used in a positive way in the Windows world.

Just rename it from NuGet to something sensible like "Visual Studio Package Manager". Those cryptic Linux style names have no place in the clean world of MS products and technologies :-). The command should be named to say what it does on the tin; then what is a "Nu"?

Nuget could be great, but completely fails to install and get a new version of itself... Broken for a long time.

Can't install the update like everybody else (no test before release??) but I cannot remove the current version either. I've removed NuGet via add/remove programs in Windows, but in Visual Studio the options to disable or remove NuGet are greyed out..

So please fix this!

update: you must run Visual Studio as administrator to be able to uninstall NuGet.

Why the heck do you put detailed instructions on how to fix the Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate update problem, instead of just posting a new fixed version?
Would have saved the customers a lot of trouble I presume...
But otherwise, really awesome extension, a must have :)

Just a tip to get this working:

1. Uninstall "NuGet" from Programs/Features
2. Open Visual Studio as an Administrator (i.e. right click, "Run as Administrator")
3. Go to "Tools" --> "Extension Manager" and uninstall NuGet from Visual Studio

After that, you should be able to install the new VSIX from here.

Lot of errors in trying to update to lastest version... Poor Microsoft, this is the beginning of the end!
Thanks goes to Kid 5x1llz who found the undocumented solution...

- Go to Program and Features, search for "Nuget" and uninstall it
- Go to Visual Studio > Toole > Extension Manager > Find Nuget and uninstalll it
- Restart

fails to install using VS Extension Manager

I also got this error when installing. It is confusing as you may be lead to believe it is an issue with VS2010. However, it is an issue with the NuGet installer itself.

Here is how I resolved it:
- Go to Program and Features, search for "Nuget" and uninstall it
- Go to Visual Studio > Toole > Extension Manager > Find Nuget and uninstalll it
- Restart

Attempt to re-install it and you should be good to go.

Of course, none of this is documented, the error message isnt even clear and worst you may not realize you have Nuget installed! Very annoying time waster.

Love it!

UPDATE: I found a workaround. You need to unistall nuget pm and install the new version from the gallery.

I have the same problem - the installer says that the current version signature differs from the signature of v 1.5 Here is my log:

2VSIXInstaller.Common.VerifyMatchingExtensionSignatures(IInstalledExtension installedExtension, IInstallableExtension updateExtension)
w VSIXInstaller.InstallProgressPage.BeginInstallVSIX(SupportedVSSKU targetAppID)
2011-12-22 09:32:53 - Install Error : VSIXInstaller.SignatureMismatchException: The signature on the update version of 'NuGet Package Manager' does not match the signature on the installed version. Therefore, Extension Manager cannot install the update.
