There are no usable .NET assemblies in X

There are some packages I would like to install, but I get the "There are no usable .NET assemblies in X"

These are CEFSharp.Winforms and Chromium.ChromeDriver. I think these packages may contain non .NET dlls, but I would still like to be able to use them, instead of having to download thefiles manually and copy them to the execution directory.

    These packages rely on scripts to install references into a Visual Studio project file. With LINQPad, there is no project or MSBuild - it can work only if there are declarative references in the NuGet package.

    If a package contains native DLLs in addition to managed assemblies, LINQPad can usually find the supporting native DLLs provided that they are contained within a folder named \x86\, \win-x86\, \win7-x86\, \x64\, \amd64\, \win-x64\ or \win7-x64\ (this is how packages such as System.Data.SQLite.Core can work). However, the managed DLLs still need to be declaratively listed in the NuGet package spec.
