Hi I would like to install the latest development build of MonoGame but I am not sure how.
I found this tutorial here - is it still up to date?
I have added the feed but I don’t understand this line:
- From the folder with your game’s .csproj:
dotnet add package MonoGame.Framework.DesktopGL --prerelease
dotnet add package MonoGame.Content.Builder.Task --prerelease
How do I add the package specifically from the folder? When I run these commands in Nuget console in VS I just receive an error. I did replace ‘DesktopGL’ with ‘Android’
You can run the commands in something like PowerShell, or the Windows Terminal.
In Windows, you can shift + right click in your folder in Windows Explorer and choose “Open in PowerShell”.
There’s also a way to install directly from visual studio, but I forgot how.
Thanks for your reply. After trying to run in command prompt in the folder with the .csproj file I receive this error:
C:\Users[hidden]\source\repos[hidden]>dotnet add package MonoGame.Framework.Android --prerelease
C:\Users[hidden]\source\repos[hidden][hidden].csproj(190,3): error MSB4019: The imported project “C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\5.0.301\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.CSharp.targets” was not found. Confirm that the expression in the Import declaration “C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\5.0.301\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.CSharp.targets” is correct, and that the file exists on disk.
Unable to create dependency graph file for project ‘C:\Users[hidden]\source\repos[hidden][hidden].csproj’. Cannot add package reference.
Looking at the artifacts, I indeed don’t see any android packages: snip. I guess they are somewhere else?
Thank you very much but how do I install the packages from the link you provided?
Edit: Nevermind I realised I had to manually connect the NuGet package to VS
Hi again, I have been using this fine for the past few months but for about a week I haven’t been able to search for updates for the NuGet package. Is there a problem with the server?
Hi, I would like to update my MonoGame development build to the latest version but the above issue is occurring again for the MonoGame.Framework.Android package, while MonoGame.Content.Builder.Task has the option to update to the latest build:
Using PowerShell I receive the following:
C:\Users\name\source\repos\appname\appname.csproj(220,3): error MSB4019: The imported project "C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\5.0.409\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.CSharp.targets" was not found. Confirm that the expression in the Import declaration "C:\Program Files\dotnet\sdk\5.0.409\\Xamarin\Android\Xamarin.Android.CSharp.targets" is correct, and that the file exists on disk.
Unable to create dependency graph file for project 'C:\Users\name\source\repos\appname\appname.csproj'. Cannot add package reference.
