SYNOPSIS

Adds Package Management package providers to the current session.

SYNTAX

Import-PackageProvider [-Name] <String[]> [-RequiredVersion <String>] [-MinimumVersion <String>]
 [-MaximumVersion <String>] [-Force] [-ForceBootstrap] [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Import-PackageProvider cmdlet adds one or more package providers to the current session. The provider that you import must be installed on the local computer.

To get a list of available providers, run Get-PackageProvider -ListAvailable. Note that a package provider name can be different from its module name.

Due to security reasons, PackageManagement requires C#-based providers to contain a provider.manifest. For more information on how to build a provider with provider.manifest injected, see the .csproj project files on https://github.com/oneget/onegethttps://oneget.org.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Import a package provider from the local computer

PS C:\> Import-PackageProvider -Name "Nuget"

This command imports the Nuget provider after it has been installed on the local computer.

Example 2: Import a specific version of a package provider

PS C:\> Find-PackageProvider -Name "Nuget" -AllVersions
Install-PackageProvider -Name "Nuget" -RequiredVersion "2.8.5.201" -Force
Get-PackageProvider -ListAvailable
Import-PackageProvider -Name "Nuget" -RequiredVersion "2.8.5.201" -Verbose

This command finds, installs, and imports a specific version of the Nuget package provider.
