Error installing EPiServer Find via nuget



I'm getting the following error while installing EPiServer Find on Alloy project via nuget

"Could not install package 'EPiServer.Find'. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets '.NETFramework,Version=v4.0', but the package does not contain any assembly references or content files that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author."

 Does anybody know how to solve it?

Thanks in advance!

According to the error message Find 9.2 does not support Framework 4.0.

If that is the case (I do not know, contact support on the chat to ask) you have to update your project to Framework 4.5

Hi Henrik!

Thanks for your reply. That's what I understand from the error, but still it sounds weird. I'm trying to install Find on Alloy project, following the example in your blog post but I guess you didn't have this problem?

Great to see that you are using my blog post (part three will be up soon).

No, but I have it in framework 4.5.2.

I am right now talking to support, will get back to you soon

EPiServer.Find 9.x only supports .Net 4.5 and up.
