I have been working on my first Umbraco 7 project. No matter what I do I cannot get it to install correctly via Nuget with VS2013. I am tearing my hair out here, which is bad because I don’t have much to start with!
The instructions are from our.umbraco.org, titled Installing Umbraco with Nuget.
I have followed the instructions to the letter, including turning off my Resharper install. I have tried on two different machines, a Windows 7 with VS2013 professional and the same install on Windows 8.1.
No matter what I do, I lose the Add Controllers and other scaffolding options at the point that the Umbraco install completes.
I have tried installing an empty MVC project (which creates the menu options), then uninstalling MVC via Nuget, then installing via the instructions above, same result.
If I follow the instructions above for VS2012 I get the correct scaffolding.
I am using Umbraco 7.2.1, I have also tried 7.2.4.
With VS2013 the end results are always as shown in the image below. The solution (ugh thats so 2012!) is to use VS2012!
