U4-3769 - Not possible to build branch 7.0.0 from Github using Visual Studio 2013 / NuGet 2.7

  1. Open src/umbraco.sln
  2. Open Package Manager Console, click restore

Error: "An error occoured while trying to restore packages: Unable to find version '2.0.0' of package 'log4net-mediumtrust'.

Strange, it should get it from MyGet automatically. Try using build/build.bat first and see if that works.

In the end I tried the following steps which produced a successful build:

  1. Created a src/nuget.config file and added the following sources: https://www.myget.org/F/umbraco7nightly/ http://packages.umbraco.org/

  2. Copied WebApplications folder from "Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\VisualStudio\v12.0" to "Program Files (x86)\MSBuild\VisualStudio\v11.0" since build/build.bat and Nuget 2.6 seems to require this folder.

  3. Ran build/build.bat

I am not entirely sure which of those steps where actually necessary.
