Subscribe to SDK assembly updates using NuGet
Applies To: Dynamics CRM 2013
Microsoft Dynamics CRM SDK assemblies and some command-line tools are available through a software distribution website called nuget.org. Use of NuGet packages in your application project enables you to keep your project up to date with the latest releases of the SDK assemblies and tools. Microsoft Visual Studio has supported this capability since version 2010 and there is even a standalone NuGet client for those developers that don’t develop in Visual Studio. Another advantage of using NuGet packages in your projects is that assembly references and dependencies are automatically taken care of for you. NuGet packages are available for the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2013 and Microsoft Dynamics CRM Online SDK as well as for the previous version, the Microsoft Dynamics CRM 2011 SDK.
Where to find the SDK packages
The CRM 2013 and CRM Online SDK packages can be found by searching the NuGet website for Microsoft.crmsdk. The search results in a list of available CRM SDK packages. Select any package in the list to navigate to the package details page.
The package titles indicate the CRM 2013 SDK, however, packages for the CRM 2011 SDK are also available on the detail pages. The CRM 2013 SDK packages are versions 6.0.x. or 6.1.x. To locate the packages for the previous version, go to the desired package detail page and choose the 5.0.x version of the package. For example, on the Microsoft.CrmSdk.CoreAsemblies page, choose the 5.0.18 version.
