How to get the PostSharp package running with Paket

Recently, I reported some difficulties that I‘ve experienced with the PostSharp NuGet package when I was using the new package manager Paket. I tracked the problem down to the ‚install.ps1‘ script which is executed by NuGet after adding PostSharp to a project. This PowerShell script (located under packages\PostSharp\tools) patches your project file. Since this behaviour is already proclaimed from the pulpit by NuGet, I hope that PostSharp is going to remove that asap. Until then, you can execute the script manually or patch the csproj-File by yourself.

In order to do that, insert the following 2 snippets at the the position shown in the screenshots:

   1: <DontImportPostSharp>True</DontImportPostSharp>




Don’t forget to change the relative path to your PostSharp package in the following snippet:

   1: <Import Project="..\..\packages\PostSharp\tools\PostSharp.targets" Condition="Exists('..\..\packages\PostSharp\tools\PostSharp.targets')" /> 

   2: <Target Name="EnsurePostSharpImported" BeforeTargets="BeforeBuild" Condition="'$(PostSharp30Imported)' == ''">

   3: <Error Condition="!Exists('..\..\packages\PostSharp\tools\PostSharp.targets')" Text="This project references NuGet package(s) that are missing on this computer. Enable NuGet Package Restore to download them. For more information, see" />

   4: <Error Condition="Exists('..\..\packages\PostSharp\tools\PostSharp.targets')" Text="The build restored NuGet packages. Build the project again to include these packages in the build. For more information, see" />




I also recommend you to activate the following PostSharp Option in Visual Studio:
