Where to find QuantConnect.Models and QuantConnect.Securities in offline VS project?

Hi,
I do not see intellisense support in my projects. So I installed GitHub and want to work offline. Which I prefer in VS2013 and TFS. How can I get the using QuantConnect.Models and QuantConnect.Securities in my VS for strong typing and offline compilation?

Hey @Quant Trader - the first step is downloading and building the QCAlgorithm project on GitHub - you can do this here: https://github.com/QuantConnect/QCAlgorithm

Once you've unzipped, open the root solution file and attempt to build it.

Once you have it building locally, open the /QuantConnect.Algorithm folder and inside there's a file MyAlgorithm.cs

If start coding there you'll see you can use all of intellisense, and view all of the QCAlgorithm source

Dear Jared,

Thank you. I managed to download. I tried to keep GitHub (unfamiliar with) together with TFS, but that did not work. I removed all GitHub files because Visual Studio did prefer GitHub over TFS version control.
