Quick tip: Validating Nuget package by installing it from local disk

Posted on

When you releasing software it is critical to double check that package is not corrupted.If i don’t have private repository deployments to host packages,  I usually open package with any zip archive program like 7Zip, but better way is to actually install it from local disk . Here is a quick tip:

Open package manager console in Visual Studio and type:

Install-Package windowsazure.mediaservices -Source C:\MediaServicesClientSDKRelease\NuGetRelease
