Solved: ‘Unable to find package’ error


Whilst recently installing Specflow on a new Windows PC, I ran into an unexpected error after running the below command:

dotnet tool install --global SpecFlow.Plus.License --version 3.9.7

This is the error I encountered whilst running the above command:

C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Temp\cd1e38b3-c92a-436d-b439-f1535d848adc\restore.csproj : error NU1101: Unable to find package No packages exist with this id in source(s): C:\Program Files\dotnet\library-packs, Microsoft Visual Studio Offline Packages The tool package could not be restored.
Tool ‘’ failed to install. This failure may have been caused by:
You are attempting to install a preview release and did not use the –version option to specify the version.
A package by this name was found, but it was not a .NET tool.
The required NuGet feed cannot be accessed, perhaps because of an Internet connection problem.
You mistyped the name of the tool.

SharePoint Framework (SPFx) offers a flexible approach to building custom solutions for Microsoft SharePoint that leverage modern web development technologies.

There was no clear pattern as to why the issues would occur. After staring at the code and pulling my hair out, I eventually came across a solution…

In this post, I’ll be sharing the solution that worked for me.

Solved: Dotnet EF CLI ‘Could not execute’ Error

dotnet logo


The ‘dotnet ef’ CLI command enables developers to work with Entity Framework Core (EF Core) database operations from the standard dotnet command line.

Recently I came across the below error whilst trying to run the ‘dotnet ef’ CLI commands:

$ dotnet ef
Could not execute because the specified command or file was not found.
Possible reasons for this include:
  * You misspelled a built-in dotnet command.
  * You intended to execute a .NET program, but dotnet-ef does not exist.
  * You intended to run a global tool, but a dotnet-prefixed executable with this name could not be found on the PATH.

If you have also encountered this error whilst using the Entity Framework commands via the dotnet CLI, then you’re in luck because I’ll be sharing the fix in this article.

Blazor WebAssembly Icon


Blazor is an exciting new technology for .NET developers that enables us to leverage our core strengths by writing most of the code in C# and minimising the need to write JavaScript code.

While working on a Blazor WebAssembly solution that used Steve Sanderson’s BlazorInputFile solution I came across an unusual issue where the “No File Chosen” text would not change and the selected filename did not appear even though a file had already been selected.

Hmmmm … what’s going on here?

How To: Clone GIT Repo Using Personal Access Token


In this post I’ll show you how you can clone a Git repository using a Personal Access Token instead of a regular password.

Personal Access Tokens are useful in a variety of situations. I recently opted to use an access token on a work laptop rather than using my ‘god mode’ credentials. That way, if I needed to hand the laptop back to my employer I could easily revoke the access.

Enough talk … lets get to it!
