NUnit Addins

I tried two different add-ins for VS.NET that run NUnit test inside of visual studio. The first is NUnit-Addin by Jamie Cansdale. This installed and just worked, the output from the tests was text format and shown in a "Test" part of the output docker. The only thing I really missed from this tool was being able to see a list of the tests and run individual ones.

The other add-in that I tried was called TestRunner and I found it on This tool claimed to show a nice graphical view of the tests that could be run similar to the NUnit gui. Unfortunately I just couldn't get this add-in to work at all, and it also required a specific reference to its own build of the NUnit assemblies - not something I was happy to do.

NUnit-Addin - Recommended.

Thanks for the comments. I thought you might like to know I'm starting to think about how best to do a GUI for NUnit Add-In. If there are any features you particularly want, now is a good time to say. I'm also working on a similar add-in for NAnt and FxCop. Drop me a note if you would like to beta test any of these.

I had the same problem, and the same issue. We are starting a large project and the tool would have been quite useful. Jamie I would be happy to test your next iteration
