Using Visual Studio Community version, I have code that requires using the GeoPoint class. After doing some search online I found that it is likely that this class is part of the Microsoft Windows.Devices.Geolocation namespace.

I have restrictions on my work computer. And these restrictions are preventing me from conducting a solution I found online which is to use a more current .NET framework which includes this missing class. I downloaded and tried installing the following files, but I did not have the system privledges to do so.[^]

Instead, I am going to have to use visual studio IDE to import a .nupkg file as a nuget package. The question I have is: Where do I find the right .nupkg file that will have the proper GeoPoint class?

What I have tried:

I tried to do things but I do not have admin privledges to run elevated.

You can't. Microsoft do not release code using NuGet - if it is part of .NET 4, then you need to install the whole of .NET 4 and update your whole app to use that version of the framework as you cannot "mix'n'match" a later .NET version assembly with an earlier .NET version project.

Time to consult you boss / company IT dept about updating your dev environment.
