How to install ZeroMQ with C# and .NET  binding and example on Microsoft Visual Studio 2012 or 2010

See towards the end which seems to be a decent tutorial from CodeProject.com

Download Zero MQ from: http://www.zeromq.org/distro:microsoft-windows
C# bindings: http://www.zeromq.org/bindings:clr or https://github.com/zeromq/clrzmq
You could also install the C# bindings (clrzmq) with NuGet:
Just download and optn the VSIX file with your Visual Studio.
Install clrmzq 3 with: http://packages.nuget.org/Packages/clrzmq
Use the NuGet package manager console:
This process could fail dueif in Visual Studio 2012:
Install-Package : Could not install package ‘clrzmq 3.0.0-rc1’. You are trying to install this package into a project that targets ‘.NETFramework,Version=v3.5’, b
ut the package does not contain any assembly references that are compatible with that framework. For more information, contact the package author.

For Visual Studio 2010, do the above but ensure to have a project solution open (i.e. Your ZeroMQ solution)
Install-Package : The current environment doesn’t have a solution open.

The CodeProject seems to work ok on Visual Studio 2010 but is somewhat using outdated ZeroMQ DLLs.
