Examples

Install a software package and its dependencies:

PS C:\> Install-Package -Name NuGet.Core -Source MyNuGet -Credential ss64dom\User64

Use Find-Package to install a package:

PS C:\> Find-Package -Name NuGet.Core -Source MyNuGet | Install-Package

Install from a local .MSI:

PS C:\> install-package .\demofile.msi
note this does not allow passing parameters to the MSI,
to do that use Start-Process msiexec.exe -ArgumentList 'arg1' 123 ...

Install packages by specifying a range of versions:

PS C:\> Install-Package -Name NuGet.Core -Source MyNuGet -MinimumVersion 2.8.0 -MaximumVersion 2.9.0
