Podio Asp Net Sample will not compile

Hi, I am new to the podio API and I am trying to get it running on a windows 7 PC. I have installed the latest version of Visual Studio and downloaded and unziped the PodioAspNetSample folder.

When I open the solution and try and compile it, I get 69 errors, typically, 
Error CS0246 The type or namespace name 'Podio' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) : PodioAspNetSample E:\Dropbox\podio\asp-net-sample-master\PodioAspNetSample\Controllers\AuthorizationController.cs 

Does anyone have any idea why this is happening.

I had a similar problem. Try this:

  1. With the solution loaded into VS (Visual Studio), select NuGet Package Manager --> Package Manager Console from the Tools menu.
  2. The console window should the appear at the bottom of the VS client, where you should see the PM > prompt
  3. For synchronous version:

    PM> Install-Package Podio

    For asynchronous version:

    PM> Install-Package Podio.Async

    This will install the client library and the required dependency.

I ended up having to install the asynchronous version. Hope that helps,
