I want to install the "Modern UI Charts for WPF" package. I am using Windows 7 , VS Express 2013 and .Net framwork 4.5 .

I can run the source code theme provided from next link with no errors:
https://modernuicharts.codeplex.com/[^]

but when I try to download and link the package from NuGet Manager and from NuGet console (
XML
https://staging.nuget.org/packages/De.TorstenMandelkow.MetroChart/
)

I can not do it. I think is not longer available.This is the error messege printed in NuGet Console:

Install-Package : Unable to find package 'De.TorstenMandelkow.MetroChart'.
At line:1 char:16
+ Install-Package <<<< De.TorstenMandelkow.MetroChart
+ CategoryInfo : NotSpecified: (:) [Install-Package], InvalidOperationException
+ FullyQualifiedErrorId : NuGetCmdletUnhandledException,NuGet.PowerShell.Commands.InstallPackageCommand



Also I have tried to add the .dll from the previous source code as a reference in a new project. I copy the folders with the .dll in my new project file , I tried to drag and drop the .dll in the VS Solution Explorer and don't works. Then I try adding a reference in the add a referenece dialog but it can not find the .dll.


What am I doing wrong? Have anyone experience with this package?

Finally I could do it.

First download the correct .dll from here: https://modernuicharts.codeplex.com/downloads/get/674666[^]

2)Then copy the file inside of your project.

3)Drag and drop the .dll file over the project and double click over it from the "Solution Explorer" in VS .

4)Finally there is a small button in the header of the tab "Object Browser" to "Add references" automatically to the current project . Press it and .dll currently opened would be added to the project.

Four sure there are more easy and direct ways to do this , but for this concret library I have to do it like this.
