Hi all users! MVVM Light is not maintained anymore. I recommend looking at the CommunityTookit MVVM package. Thank you for all your support during all these years!! - Laurent

See the version list below for details.
dotnet add package MvvmLight --version
NuGet\Install-Package MvvmLight -Version

#r "nuget: MvvmLight,"
