MVVM fails to nuget install on blank new VB.NET project


The error is very obvious:

Cannot find App.xaml in this project, no other changes made. If you are installing in a PCL, please use "MVVM Light Libs Only" instead.

This is because there is no App.xaml file in a VB.NET project, but there is an Application.xaml, with the same content. I can't possibly know what Microsoft developers where thinking when they took the decision to name them differently in C#/VB, but that's how things are.
