I am trying to get Math.NET Numerics for F#. It seems like the only way to do it is to install the NuGet Package Manager Console.

However, after downloading NuGet, I try to click on nuget.exe, and I get the message:

You can’t open the application “nuget.exe” because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on OS X.

Is there any way to get NuGet to work on a Mac?

    Mac and Windows are different OS's, but you can get Windows emulators for the Mac that might run it (as Wine would in Linux). – DrMoishe Pippik Jan 13 '17 at 5:41

I work on Xamarin Components Team with nuget on a daily basis.

Install mono and use:

mono nuget.exe

It is possible to install nuget via brew too:

brew install nuget
