What is NuGet Installer

NuGet Installer is a command-line installer that installs the latest version of NuGet.exe into your system. You may notice while you use NuGet that you always need to move NuGet.exe file every time you want to use it. To solve this problem, I wrote this software, NuGet Installer, that installs NuGet.exe directly into C:\Windows folder, so you do not need to copy it every time you want to run it.
