Well. I have sucessfully build Hydrodesktop but while debugging here come out the problem. In project DownloadExtensions, file ExtensionDownloader.cs:

//install ribbon (from DotSpatial MyGet repository)
            if (isHeaderControlNeeded && isStatusControlNeeded)
                App.UpdateProgress("Downloading a Ribbon extension...");
            //install menu bar
            if (App.GetExtension("DotSpatial.Plugins.MenuBar") == null)
                App.UpdateProgress("Downloading a MenuBar extension...");
The code underline threw the exception that "WebException was unhandled"with the description "The remote name could not be resolved: 'www.myget.org' ".

See the pictures below.

So anyone who know the problem?

Thank you very much!

Hi, Thank you for your testing. On the first start-up, HydroDesktop tries to download some nuget packages from:


These include the Ribbon, MenuBar and AttributeDataExplorer plug-ins.

Please check if your Internet connection is available and if you can access the website http://www.myget.org/F/DotSpatial/Packages in your browser.
