Reinstall NuGet-packages

November 16, 2016

When you, for example, change the target framework for your Visual Studio project/projects you may need to reinstall your NuGet-packages.



  • Update-Package -Reinstall (reinstalls all packages in the solution)
  • Update-Package -Reinstall -Project Company.Function (or -ProjectName, reinstalls all packages in the specified project)
  • Update-Package -Reinstall MyPackage (reinstalls the package “MyPackage” in the whole solution)

Some other parameters:

  • -IgnoreDependencies (skips updating any of the package’s dependencies)
  • -WhatIf (shows what would happen when running the command without actually performing the update)

From → .NET, NuGet, Visual Studio
