Unit test generator breaks nuget


This plugin breaks nuget in visual studio 2012 and 2013 for me, if you try to use any nuget command, you get the error dialog below, uninstalling this plugin makes nuget work correctly again:

Microsoft Visual Studio

The component 'NuGet.VisualStudio.ProductUpdateBar' does not have a resource identified by the URI '/NuGet.VisualStudio;component/productupdate/productupdatebar.xaml'.

Could you give us more information on your environment and the version of the Unit Test Generator version used. We have been trying to find other users experiencing the same issue and have not seen this behaviour on our test environments.

Could you confirm the exact steps to reproduce the problem, so that we can repro?

Sorry I can't, I re-installed Unit Test Generator and the problem hasn't re-appeared.
On the plus side the problem hasn't re-appeared.

Just ran in to the same issue.


VS2013 Professional
12.0.30110.00 Update 1

Created new project (Console App)
Created new project (Class Library) [referenced in console app]
Created new project (Unit test Project)

When I go to add NuGet packages I get the above prompt.

I have the same problem.
1) Create a console application.
2) Write a dummy method to generate test for.
3) Generate tests for the project (using NUnit and default settings).
4) Right-click on main (or test) project and click "Manage NuGet references"

The mentioned error appears.

But after restarting VS and loading the project everything works fine, I can open NuGet normally. This breaks again after generating a unit test, which causes a new test project to be created.

I've hit the same problem with Microsoft Visual Studio Ultimate 2013 12.0.30501.00 update 2.

Specifically, after having run unit tests, attempts to open the package-manager console cause the above. In fact, I had the console open previously, and when I tried showing it the console window vanished. Attempting to open it then generated the error.

We should have fixed this. Can you check which version of the extension you have installed? It should be version
