How do I downgrade a NuGet package?
Visual Studio for Mac & Visual Studio both have features for selecting older versions of packages and installing them automatically; similar to how updating packages works. These steps are described below.
Go to Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Package Manager Console
Set the project under Default Project
Use this syntax:
Install-Package [PackageName] -Version [tab for version menu]
You can also copy/paste the exact command from the package's NuGet page. Example for Xamarin.Forms: https://www.nuget.org/packages/Xamarin.Forms/
Visual Studio for Mac
In your project, right-click the packages folder & select Add Packages
In the searchbar, you can use the following syntax to search for your required packages:
Lists all Xamarin.Forms packages:
Lists all Xamarin.Forms 1.4.x packages:
If you add a space between
version: & the version number, the search will behave as though no version was specified.
