Solving System.Web.Http.GlobalConfiguration' does not contain a definition for 'Configure

When upgrading your fantastic Asp.Net Web Api projects to version 2.0, you might come across this wonderful error -

System.Web.Http.GlobalConfiguration' does not contain a definition for 'Configure 
on this line of code -
GlobalConfiguration.Configure(WebApiConfig.Register);

The solution is quick and simple.

1. Open the Package Manager Console for the project with the error.
2. Type in Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.WebHost and hit Enter
3. Rebuild your project and all should be right with the world (or at least right with your project)


Smooches,

Thank you Kila, this solved my problem.

I am not sure about nu-get though, this whole scenario causes more problems than it fixes....
