Just upgraded to LP7.
Now both LP6 and 7 wont open Nuget without this problem.
Also notice both LP6 and 7 missing their help menus.
How to fix ?
Does LINQPad show as licensed when you start it? In Help | About, does it say LINQPad Developer edition or LINQPad Premium edition?
Both version show "Licenced to xxx" in top right corner.
Cant do help -> About, help menu missing in both versions...
Used to be there with LP6, but now gone too
Strange... have you tried restarting?
Just did a reboot then to make sure. Same issue. May be related to an unexpected windows update that occurred earlier today.
Can't uninstall & reinstall. Both are xcopy deployments.
Registry reset somehow ?
Try removing your license (Help | Remove License) and then re-activate.
Cant, literally don't have a Help menu !
Logged on under another user profile. LP6 looks normal (Help menu present & says unlicenced)
So looks like a corruption in my userprofile ?
Got a manual way to remove/reset the licence ?
Hold that, help has just appeared
Ok, Help menu issue was my stupid fault.
So uninstalled licence.
Entered v7 licence into LP7, says OK, but again same nuget issue.
Remove v7 lic, & close LP7
Open LP6, enter v6 licence, says OK and nuget all ok in LP6.
Close LP6 (without uninstalling lic), open LP7 (says is registered & version is Pro) but same nuget problem.
Check lic's on https://www.linqpad.net/licensing/ListActivations.aspx, both report correctly as being for v6 and v7 respectively.
So now it is looking like a v7 licence registration issue.
The Pro version doesn't include the NuGet package manager. You need either the developer edition or the premium edition. You can upgrade (and pay just the difference) here:https://www.linqpad.net/CustomUpgrade.aspx
ugh my bad, I thought I bought the top version.
Thanks for your help.
