csUnit, Visual Studio 2008, Vista, .NET 3.x

Maybe you have wondered about whether csUnit is supported on Vista and/or Visual Studio 2008. So in this post I'd like to give a few details for csUnit 2.2. Microsoft Windows Vista is not an issue. csUnit installs and runs just fine. This is also true for Visual Studio 2005 on Vista. The add-in registers properly and the context menus work, too. Visual Studio 2008 is a different story. The add-ins don't install and neither do the context menus. This is an item that we'll address in one of the next csUnit releases. If you are building for .NET 2.0 in VS 2008 you can still use csUnitRunner as a stand-alone application and run all tests. This mode works on both XP and Vista. If you are building an application for .NET 3.0 or .NET 3.5 that's fine, too. Simply include the reference to the csUnit 2.2 runtime assemblies as before and run your tests within csUnitRunner (or the add-in in VS 2005 if you managed to modify VS2005 to use .NET 3.x). If you encounter an issue with any of the above combinations, or if you find a combination that doesn't work, we would be very interested to hear about it. Please log a bug report at csUnit's but tracker at SourceForge and include as many details about your specific configuration as possible. Happy testing! (Note: All of the tests mentioned above were conducted using the English language version of the mentioned software components, all of them on the latest patch level as of the date of publication.)
