  1. Open the project and select References, open the context menu with mouse (right click) and select Manage NuGet Packages …
    select Manage “Manage NuGet Packages …”
  2. Search for the package:

  3. Install Cimbalino Toolkit:

Nuget makes a number of "standard" changes:

  • The file packages.config file is added to the project, listing the installed packages:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <package id="Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit" version="3.1.0" targetFramework="wp80" />
    <package id="Cimbalino.Phone.Toolkit.Background" version="3.1.0" targetFramework="wp80" />
  • The MVVM Light packages are installed to the project into a folder named packages, which you can find at the same level as the solution file:
