Trying to download Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices.

    Question

  • Hi all;

    Sorry if I'm being obtuse.  

    When I try to close Visual Studio I a dialog box saying it "Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices'.  I looked this up and tried to follow the instructions in the post that many say has the answer.

    I created a test console application, right-clicked on the new project, selected Manage Nuget Packages, clicked Browse only to find an empty dialogue box with "no packages found" there.  So I can't select "Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices". 

    Please help, ... I've wasted so much time with this.

  • Hi Jack;

    I think the problem was that my installation was messed up.  I was trying to follow Shinva's suggestion, however, when I ran my Nuget Package manager, it was missing the nuget.org parkage source.  It contained links for Microsoft and .Net packages, but nothing else.  When I tried to add a package source by adding a link to the Nuget site where I was able to see the packages Visual Studio told me my entry was invalid.

    I ended up creating a package source by looking at my friend's installation and copying the link for his nuget.org package source which was "https://api.nuget.org/v3/index.json".    After that I was able to find the Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices package.   All is good now!

    Thanks,

    KD

  • Hi KD,

    If possible, please open your package manager Console under TOOLS->Nuget package manager.

    Install-Package Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices

    https://www.nuget.org/packages/Microsoft.VisualStudio.ConnectedServices

    Check it again.

    Other member also met the similar issue before:

    Like Shinva's suggestion, maybe you could copy the dll file.

    Best Regards,
