Tooltip: Adding a package to your Visual Studio project with PMC
October 8, 2013
Package Management Console is an easy way to insert a package to your project, in my case I wanted to convert my simple console app to an entity framework app with a database connection.
Here’s a simple walk through:
Go into Tools -> Library package manager -> Package manager console. The PMC opens up in the lower section of VS.
Now type “Install-Package EntityFramework” and The EF package will be installed within your project.
Now we just need to implement EF in our project
and add the references System.Data.Entity and Microsoft.Data.Entity.
