Unable to install Episerver on VS2013 Express



I have installed VS2013 Express and tried to install Episerver 8.1, there is no online option to install. 

Do we have any alternative option?

Could you please help me to install Episerver 8.1.

You need to define version when installing the nuget package.

For example write like this in package manager console

Install-Package EPiServer.CMS.Core -Version 8.1.0

I think you have to install the database with deployment center since I thinkt that the initialize database function came after 8.1 if I am not misstaken

You need to have a solution to install the nuget package into.

I recommend that you download the Visual Studio Extension by Episerver, create a new site in there, and then target your PackageManager commands at one of the projects by using the dropdown in the top of the console.
