Fairly recently, the NotifyPropertyWeaver extension has been removed from the Visual Studio Gallery. If you follow the instructions in Chapter 5.3.3 for adding NotifyPropertyWeaver, you won't find it anywhere via Visual Studio Extension Manager or NuGet.

This post explains why NotifyPropertyWeaver has been deprecated:
https://github.com/Fody/PropertyChanged/wiki/ConvertingFromNotifyPropertyWeaver

To make the code sample work, simply use the NuGet package manager instead and search for PropertyChanged.Fody. Install the package, and the code listings in the book will work.

Note: I was using VS 2012 for this.

Re: Chapter 5, Section 5.3.3: NotifyPropertyWeaver Deprecated, Fix
Thank you for posting this. If there's ever a new edition, I will definitely drop NotifyPropertyWeaver and swap in Fody.
