####**Requirements**####

Before you install this package, you must be running [Windows Management Framework 5.0 RTM(https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=50395).


####**Installation**####

To use the PackageManagementProviderResource module,

  • Copy the content of the download to the $env:ProgramFiles\WindowsPowerShell\Modules folder.

To confirm installation,

  • Run Get-DSCResource to verify that PackageManagement, NugetPackage, PackageManagementSource and PSModule are among the DSC Resources listed in your DSC resources.

####**Building the Code**####

The code is a Windows PowerShell script and interpreted by the Windows PowerShell engine at runtime.


####**Running Test**####

To test the modules, run the following commands. The NuGetPackage resource is used here as an example.

  • cd $env:ProgramFiles\WindowsPowerShell\Modules\PackageManagementProviderResource\Test
  • .\NugetPackage\NugetPackage.Get.Tests.ps1
  • .\NugetPackage\NugetPackage.Set.Tests.ps1
  • .\NugetPackage\NugetPackage.Test.Tests.ps1

You can repeat these commands similarly for testing PackageManagement, PSModule and PackageManagementSource DSC resources.
