NuGet - LinqPad 5 uses official nuget even though disabled

I hope someone can help. I have my own NuGet repository, and this is enabled (using Linqpad NuGet Manager => Settings). The "NuGet3 official package source" is disabled.

When I attempt to download a package (from my own repo), I get the following exception:

Error downloading 'package name here' - Unable to load the service index for source - this is the source for the official NuGet repo, not my repo.

Anyone know how to get round this?

Many thanks.



  • NB: Using LINQPad 4, I don't have this problem.
  • Same Problem here. The Firewall is blocking the communication to but we are not able to disable the default package in the GUI.

    I have disabled the default NuGet Package Source, but version 5 is still trying to geht packages details from the disabled default source. Thus resulting in an error being unable to download NuGet Packes from our local source.

    With version 4 we don't have this issue, it appears only in version 5.
  • I've just tried using Windows Firewall to block IP address ( and can still download from other sources.

    Are you certain you've unchecked the default source?
  • Yes, we are not able to delete the default source, but it is unchecked.
    Works in version 4, but not in 5.

    Sadly this makes version 5 unusable for us.
  • We can search the Linqpad NuGet Managers packages, but as soon as we hit the button "Add To Query" the following error apperars:

    Error downloading 'packageName' - Unable to load the service index for source

    We are using ProGet Version 3.8.6 (Build 2) for our local repository.
  • I've tried installing Fiddler, and downloading a NuGet package from a custom MyGet source. I can't find any HTTP traffic to in the log.

    Can you try doing the same?
  • I just did, i can see that the request from version 4 to 5 is different, as soon as you hit the "Add To Query" Button in the Nuget Browser.

    Version 4:
    GET /nuget/STORM/Packages(Id='Newtonsoft.Json',Version='9.0.1') HTTP/1.1

    Version 5:
    GET /nuget/STORM/FindPackagesById()?id='Newtonsoft.Json' HTTP/1.1

    This is a Tunnel to request

  • Does Fiddler also show contact with the ProGet server?
