    Based on the last comment here I can assume you should just create postsharp.config file in the root of your solution (repository) with the following contents:

    <Project xmlns="">
      <License Value="YOUR_LICENSE_FROM_REGISTRY"/>

    where YOUR_LICENSE_FROM_REGISTRY value could be found at your dev machine under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SharpCrafters\PostSharp 3.

    I tried that but failed. This is the error log

    (PostSharp30 target) ->

    I solved it by adding registry key

    New-Item "HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\SharpCrafters\" -Type Directory
    New-Item "HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\SharpCrafters\PostSharp 3" -Type Directory
    New-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\Software\Wow6432Node\SharpCrafters\PostSharp 3" -Name LicenseKey -PropertyType String -Value ANEdsfsdfsdfsd-ZQQQdsfsdfsdfA
    NuGet.exe restore C:\projects\common\common\Common.sln

    Oh, you were first.

    I've been about to post this :)

    REG ADD "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SharpCrafters\PostSharp 3" /v LicenseKey /t REG_SZ /d <your_license>

    replace <your_license> with your value.
