NuGet redirection and package retrieval errors in Visual Studio 2015

Yesterday I have experience that I tried to install NuGet Package but an error occurred while retrieving package metadata in Visual Studio 2015.


After getting some try and catch. I found out that the VS2015 is configured to connect the API v3 of the So I tried to add another one with the URL on API v2 of the and I am then able to install any NuGet package. So I think that if you hit into the same error, this is a good to try.

Re-Run Visual Studio 2015 Preview Secondary Installer

Today I hit into a problem when running the VS2015 Preview Secdonary Installer. I then try to fix from the install log. But then I come out that how do I rerun the VS2015 Preview Secdonary Installer?

The answer is, go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\SecondaryInstaller and run SecondaryInstaller.exe from there. The VS2015 Preview Secdonary Installer will then run again.
