I have 3 web projects that are not related. One is an API, E-Commerce website, and Reporting. Each uses common interfaces and packages. The problem is the package files. Is there a wise way to remove dependencies from each package from the UI side? Example
is MVC causes me to upgrade packages because I moved my IClientValidatable to a common dll that causes other websites to force upgrade of MVC dll, which sucks because why is it such a big deal if I use MVC 4 vs MVC 5 in my new web API project.
What ends up happening when I try to restore packages for the rest of the projects is this error...
Error 3 This project references NuGet package(s) that are missing on this computer. Enable NuGet Package Restore to download them. For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=322105. The missing file is ..\packages\Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventRegister.1.0.26\build\Microsoft.Diagnostics.Tracing.EventRegister.targets.
C:\_source\xx-dev\xx\xx.Website.csproj 391 5 xx.Website
My API project is fine, my Report project is fine... what gives??? All my references are broken in Website.csproj but I see the plethora of packages in my website.package.config

so you have a problem with nuget packages. Well there are various solution.
1. You must modify the nuget package on where the location. You should have at least a shared location
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
</settings>2. Create a new nuget server repository and put all components there by folder/project. (you may need to modify your configuration as well to point to the new nuget server)
