NugGet Package manager gives error message Project 'Default' is not found in Visual Studio 2017

    Question

  • I created new Typescript Nodejs console project.

    In package manager console window, I see that Default project is empty.

    When I run Get-Package -ListAvailable, it gives error

    Get-Package : Project 'Default' is not found.
    At line:1 char:1
    + Get-Package -ListAvailable
    + ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
        + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (Default:String) [Get-Package], ItemNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : NuGetProjectNotFound,NuGet.PackageManagement.PowerShellCmdlets.GetPackageCommand
     

    I found many postings on this error but no resolution.

    How can I resolve this error.

  • Hi Umit (Netman) Tiric,

    Thanks for posting here.

    This is designed by the nuget team. From the Announcing NuGet 3.1:

    Solution packages are no longer supported, as these packages are not modifying any specific project’s capabilities and were typically used to deliver shared resources that were re-used across projects. With the new shared packages folder, these resources may already be on disk from another project.

    The template of Typescript Nodejs console project is "Blank Node.js Console Application", so the Default project on Package Manager Console window is empty and you would got that error after using command “Get-Package -ListAvailable”. If you create a common project, you will not get this error.

    To resolve this error, you can adopt the yishaigalatzer`s suggestion: Apply a package to a project and a simple way to achieve it is to create a project that will include what you used to apply to the solution level.
    For more detail information, you can refer the same issue on GitHub.
