NuGet is a great package manager, but sometimes it misbehaves and packages are either not properly downloaded or are not properly included in your project. Whenever you come across this, I recommend doing a force-reinstall of all packages.
In Visual Studio go to
NuGet Package Manager ->
Package Management Console . In the
Package Manager Console window then enter the following command:
This will go package by package and force-reinstall them the opened solution.
If you want to force-reinstall packages only for one specific project instead of the whole solution, you can add the
Update-Package -reinstall -ProjectName <yourproject>
