A recent bug pointed out that addins are not recognized when running tests under the console runner. This is due to a missing entry in the nunit-console.exe.config file, which you can easily fix yourself. Follow these steps to have your addins recognized when using the console runner:
- Open the nunit-console.exe.config file in any convenient editor - notepad is fine.
- Find the
- Insert the code below within the
<runtime>element. You can copy it from nunit.exe.config if you prefer
<assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1"> <probing privatePath="addins"/> </assemblyBinding>
From this point on, your addins should work equally well in both the Gui and Console runners.
