"manage nuget packages for solution" is missing in the drop down for NuGet Package Manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have VS2013 Ultimate on windows 7 PC and that Nuget Option does show in the dropdown.  Today, I setup a vm in Azure, from image I select VS2013 Ultimate, just like the one on my PC.  However, when I click on the Tools, Nuget, there is only 2 drop down option, "package manager console" and "package manager settings" are the only 2 available.  How can I get the ""manage nuget packages for solution"?

    I want to install the xamarin.forms extension and I need this.

    thank you



    Thank you

  • Hi laJasmine,

    Based on your issue, generally, I know that there have two ways to see the "manage nuget packages for solution" option after we install the VS2013 Ultimate.

    One way is that it is default that we can see the "manage nuget packages for solution" option by right click this Solution->Manage NuGet Packages for Solution option like the following screen shot.

    Another way is that we can see the "manage nuget packages for solution" option by clicking the Tools->Library Package Manager-> manage nuget packages for solution like the following screen shot.

    So please check if you can get the "manage nuget packages for solution" option from this above two way again.

    If you still could not the "manage nuget packages for solution" option in this VS2013 Ultimate, to check if this issue is related to the VS2013 Ultimate set up file. I suggest you could try to copy this setup file and then install it on other machine and then check if you still get the issue.

    If you have any updated message about this issue, please tell me.

    Best Regards,

  • Hi laJasmine,

    Yes, you are right. When we did not create the project in the VS IDE, we will not get the Manage NuGet Packages for Solution option.

    So if you want to get the Manage NuGet Packages for Solution option in the VS IDE, we have to create a project.

    >> The "Extension and updates" under Tools, is general for Visual Studio and not specific to a project.

    Yes, your are right. Generally, we can use the Extension and updates option to update the Extension tool or install the Extension tool from this VS IDE.

  • Okay, accessing Nuget under tools when no project is opened will not show that option, "manage nuget packages for solution" 

    After I create a project, clicking on Tools, Nuget and that option will be available.  I guess it's for getting certain packages for certain projects.  The "Extension and updates" under Tools, is general for Visual Studio and not specific to a project.  Let me know if I'm wrong with this assumption, thank you
