Tool: NuGet Tool Installer



icon Finds or downloads and caches the specified version of NuGet and adds it to the PATH




Argument Description
Version Spec Specify which NuGet version you want to use. Examples: 4.1.0, 3.x, >2.x, >=3.5
Check for Latest Version Select if you want the agent to check for the latest available version that satisfies the version spec. For example, you select this option because you run this build on your private agent and you want to always use the latest 3.x version.

If you're using our hosted agents, you should leave this check box cleared. We update the hosted agents on a regular basis, but they're often slightly behind the latest version. So selecting this box will result in your build spending a lot of time updating to a newer minor version.

Control options See Control options.

Do I need an agent?

You need at least one agent to run your build or release. Get an agent.

I can't select a default agent queue and I can't queue my build or release. How do I fix this?
