Why doesn't NuGet download the actual package's DLLs in VS 2013?

Hi:

I'm working in Vs 2013.

I used NuGet to download the latest SignalR packages.
I see that is' copied the *.nupkg and *.nuspec files.
What I don't see is the actual Dlls.
I would like to see the actual Dlls copied into my libs in the packages folder.

How do I do this through NuGet?
Or, do I physically have to add these myself?

I feel like I might be missing terribly obvious here.

Help?

Thanks,
JohnB

The libraries will be downloaded into the packages folder. Each library you acquire through NuGet will be put underneath packages. packages isn't shown by default within VS, so you either have to "Show All Files" or manually browse to the packages folder.

As far as adding them anywhere else, part of the appeal of NuGet is that you don't have to do anything else outside of installing from NuGet. Once downloaded, the libraries will be included in your build--and even in source control--for you.
