How do I install Microsoft.Activities.Extensions?

Microsoft.Activities.Extensions is built for .NET 4.0.0 and .NET 4.0.1 (and soon .NET 4.5.0)
Which release should I install?

There are two options to install Microsoft.Activities.Extensions.

Use Nuget to add it to your project (recommended)


The NuGet install downloads assemblies for .NET 4 and .NET 4.0.1 (Platform Update 1). NuGet will automatically add a reference to the correct version of the assemblies based on the target framework of your project.
The packages are installed in the packages directory under the solution folder. For example, ConsoleApplication3\packages

What does the NuGet install do to my project?

  • It adds references to Microsoft.Activities.Extensions and System.Activities
  • It adds (or replaces) toolbox icons for the activities contained in Microsoft.Activities.Extensions
