Installation - SpecsFor

Hi Matt:

I've spent a frustrating couple of hours trying to install SpecsFor on a new test project in Visual Studion 2015. It first gave me the error that Moq or one of the dependencies was not the same one referenced in the assembly. I then ran the command Add-BindingRedirect in the package manager for the test project. Now I'm getting the message that SetUp : SpecsFor.WhenSpecificationException : An error occurred during the spec 'When' phase.

System.InvalidOperationException: No Entity Framework provider found for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient'. Make sure the provider is registered in the 'entityFramework' section of the application config file. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 for more information.

I note that a couple of the dependencies seem to have new major versions which are not referenced by your package.

I think for now I'll abandon SpecsFor and just install the latest versions of Moq, Nunit and Should...
