Google Protobuf: C# Generating a Class from a .proto file

The example found on the csharp tutorial page doesn’t work. Instead do the following

  1. Open visual studio, open nuget command line, type :Install-Package Google.ProtocolBuffers , link : ProtocolBuffers
  2. Find Package/Google.ProtocolBuffers.
  3. Use command line, type : ProtoGen.exe addressbook.proto -output_directory=C:\trash
