NuGet is a Microsoft run service that allows you to import packages from an online repository, directly into Visual Studio. This is probably the easiest way to get hold of the latest Kartris code to set up a new local version for development.
Select Installed > Visual Basic > Web > Previous Versions from the left hand panel.
Then choose ASP.NET Empty Web Site in the main content area, and choose a name and location for your project. The version of the framework isn't so important, as that should be set later when we pull the files in. But you must have at least .NET 4.6 installed.
Next, remove any files and folders that Visual Studio 'helpfully' adds to the web site, so it really is empty.
Select Tools > NuGet Package Manager > Manage NuGet Packages for Solution.
Click the 'Browse' link/tab, then type 'Kartris' in the search box. You should find the Kartris package.
Click to select this, then check the box to install to the project you've just set up. Click the Install button.
Visual Studio will show you a list of dependencies. Click OK to proceed with the installation. You will also need to approve some licenses for dependencies. The required Kartris files will then be downloaded to your web.
