You can get the necessary libraries and applications from the current releases. The nUpdate library itself can also be installed in your application using the NuGet package manager.

Using NuGet


If you want to use nUpdate with the Taskbased Asynchronous Pattern including async and await, then install this package:

PM> Install-Package nUpdate.ProvideTAP -Version 3.3.1
Trouble installing nUpdate.ProvideTAP?

It may be that Visual Studio shows you a warning like The primary reference "nUpdate.ProvideTAP, Version=..., Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=..., processorArchitecture=MSIL" could not be resolved because it has an indirect dependency on the .NET Framework assembly "System.Runtime, Version=..., Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=..." which has a higher version "..." than the version "..." in the current target framework. and won't let you compile the project. You can fix this by going to the NuGet Package Manager and updating the Microsoft.Bcl.* packages to the newest version.


Otherwise, if you want to use the Eventbased Asynchronous Pattern, make sure to install this package:

PM> Install-Package nUpdate.WithoutTAP -Version 3.3.1
