ASP.Net MVC 5 (RC1) materials are all related to Visual Studio 2013. I know they need to promote their new wares but it’s still a bit annoying.

Anyway, here are the steps to use ASP.Net MVC 5 in your Visual Studio 2012

#Start your ASP.Net MVC 4 project.
#Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi -pre
#Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc -Pre
#Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.SignalR -Pre

These two will update

Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc 5.0.0-rc1
Microsoft.AspNet.Razor
Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi 5.0.0-rc1
Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.Client 5.0.0-rc1
Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.Core 5.0.0-rc1
Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.WebHost 5.0.0-rc1
Microsoft.AspNet.WebPages 3.0.0-rc1
and some other goodies
