Just did a fresh install of Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012 Ultimate 2012. When i tried to use the package manager it would always throw an error, so I uninstalled NuGet and re-installed it from the "Extensions and Updates" option. 

After installing everything works fine except that the dropdown lists for "Package Source" and "Default Project" are always empty

Hello Ahmed,

I have seen this issue reported by other users as well, and it's a bug in NuGet that should be fixed in the current version.

Customers who had previously installed NuGet on their machines occasionally don't get the updated NuGet applied correctly during installation of VS 2012. To get the updated NuGet that fixes this bug, you should go into the Extensions and Updates dialog and update your NuGet extension.

Hopefully, this resolves the issue. Let me know if it does not.

I have the same issue but with Windows 7.

I have VS2010 still installed (with package manager), when I installed VS2012 I did not appear to have package manager installed in VS2012. So I went though extension manager and installed it. Everything works except for these drop downs being empty.
