I'm trying to install the latest StructureMap in order to utilize their update Unit test capability.

However, when I tried to install the latest version using NuGet Package Manager Console, it gave me the following error message:

PM> Install-Package StructureMap -version 4.4.2

Apparently, I need to use the latest version of NuGet in order to be able to download and install that version of StructureMap. The NuGet version that I'm using is 3.1.0 and after I ran the following command:

nuget update -self
which updates the version to NuGet 3.5.0. Afterward, I was able to download, install the missing NuGet packages and build the project just fine.
