Hi,

I have my project under version control. One version is already out and I have a branch to fix it and i would like to continue dev on the project with a newer version of MMPPF. I have only one version of Visual on my build machine. 

I would like to be able to link a version of my project with a version of MMPPF. What do you consider is the best way to do this ? A NuGet package would have been nice...

Thanks for your advice.

Here are a couple great blog posts on how to add local references to the player framework (and all other extension SDKs) that you can then check in and shelve.

This makes it easier to support build servers, add vsixs to source control, and ensure all devs are using the same version.

Hope this helps, Tim

P.S. We're investigating NuGet support as well but there are currently some limitations in NuGet for Windows 8 Store components that affect the player framework.
