Download and Install WCF Data Services and OData Libraries
NuGet PackagesWCF Data Services now ships separately from the .NET Framework. The official binaries are distributed through NuGet, a package management platform for .NET applications.
Tooling InstallersThe Add Service Reference experience in Visual Studio makes it very easy to generate proxy classes for calling OData services. Tooling for Visual Studio 2012 adds a reference to the appropriate NuGet packages.
Other OData LibrariesIn addition to the NuGet libraries, there are OData libraries available for a number of other platforms.
.NET FrameworkPreviously releases of WCF Data Services have been included in the .NET Framework. The releases of WCF Data Services in .NET support OData v1 and v2 and have been superseded by the NuGet packages.
