Having trouble upgrading your Nuget Package Manager? If you get the error described in Microsoft’s explanation, their advice isn’t enough.

Here’s what you need Close down Visual Studio. Look forĀ C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0Common7IDEExtensionsMicrosoft CorporationNuGet Package Manager
and you’ll see the folder for the older Nuget version; something like 1.5.20902.9026. Just delete it. Now you can upgrade. Simples!
