Unable to restore nuget packages on VS17 and VS15

Hi Quants,

It is my first time ever working with Microsoft Visual Studio or .NET Frameworks but done course on that.

When I try building this solution (https://github.com/QuantConnect/Lean) for the first time - I tried both versions of the solution (VS17 and VS15) on their respective software - I get the following errors (featured at the end of this post for relevance reasons).

From these errors I get there are issues in restoring the nuget packages, but when I try installing/reinstalling/updating a package such as QLNet from the included Nuget Package Manager Console, I get errors such as:

PM> Install-Package QLNet -Version 1.9.2 Attempting to gather dependency information for package 'QLNet.1.9.2' with respect to project 'QuantConnect.Lean.Launcher', targeting '.NETFramework,Version=v4.5.2' Attempting to resolve dependencies for package 'QLNet.1.9.2' with DependencyBehavior 'Lowest' Resolving actions to install package 'QLNet.1.9.2' Resolved actions to install package 'QLNet.1.9.2' Removed package 'QLNet.1.10.0' from 'packages.config' Successfully uninstalled 'QLNet.1.10.0' from QuantConnect.Lean.Launcher Package 'QLNet.1.9.2' already exists in folder 'C:\Users\Work\QuantConnect\Lean-master\packages' Install failed.

or

I also downloaded and executed nuget.exe - recommended latest v4.4.1 and VS 2015 VSIX - latest v3.6.0 from this page: https://www.nuget.org/downloads , but nothing has changed.

What should I do?

(This is what I get when I try building the solution:
