This fails with "cannot access file because it is in use by another process." I also tried installing with Visual Studio closed, same result. Fails for both 2010 and 2012. And now, in 2012, when I click the Quick Launch box, Visual Studio crashes.

when will command-line 2.7.1 be included since package restore is better supported in that version?

we've got the same issue when updating MOQ from 4.1.1308.2321 to 4.1.1309.919, restore packages doesn't work.
But it only fails on some computers, on mine it works. We are using nuget version 2.7.40808.167

Overall still a superb tool of course, so i'm giving it the 5 stars it clearly deserves.

As GaryWoodfine said, 2.7 breaks some stuff.

I have NuGet integrated on my TFS build workflow, and as soon as I updated to latest version, "nuget install packages.config" breaks. Our team tried to track down the problem, and it looks like it has something to do with bigger version numbers or something.

You guys can try it for yourselves anytime, just go to the command-line and use:
Install-Package Moq -Version 4.1.1309.0919
"Unable to find version '4.1.1309.0919' of package 'Moq'."

On 2.6 it works properly.
Also, being unable to find the current version of the package gets me an effin slowdown on visual studio itself (it can even freeze at some time).

Update seems to have totally killed my Nuget facility! Not really a productivity tool when it has slowed me down!

Basically the 2.7 release installs without any Nuget Package resource!
You can't provide a package source without crashing VS.

The only option is to uninstall and re-install 2.6.

Come on guys get the basics right!

Seems to be impossible to get it to work with a nuget.config in source control. Rather less useful for teams of developers.
