Known issue on Windows XP
We would like to call out that shortly after NuGet 1.8 was released, we learned that a cryptography change in 1.8 broke users on Windows XP. Do not install NuGet 1.8 onto a Windows XP machine; if you have already installed NuGet 1.8, you can uninstall it and reinstall NuGet 1.7 using this download link.
