Description delcypher 2014-10-21 12:55:46 UTC
I'm not sure if this is the right place to report this because this is outside mono develop but its the only place I could find mention of a "NUnit" component.

The ``nunit-console`` tool has the ability to run on ``.csproj`` files but trying to do that on Monodevelop generated csproj files crashes the nunit-console tool. The issue is the tool is trying to mix UNIX paths on my system with the Windows style paths in the csproj file.

$ nunit-console4 ~/dev/foo/LibTests/SymbooglixLibTests.csproj

Comment 1 delcypher 2014-10-21 13:15:24 UTC
Huh turns out there's an easy to workaround this that I only just discovered. You can set a specially environment variable that causes Mono to try and fix the paths

$ MONO_IOMAP=all nunit-console4 ~/dev/foo/LibTests/SymbooglixLibTests.csproj

Hope that helps someone.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2014-10-21 15:37:12 UTC
This is a bug in the old version of NUnit bundled with Mono.

I'd recommend downloading the latest via NuGet.
Comment 3 delcypher 2014-10-21 15:55:22 UTC
@Michael - This isn't a complete solution

* 2.6.3 has this bug too. I built it from source [1] and the bug is still there.

* I'm rather to new NuGet but doesn't this add it to solution rather than installing it globally? Anyway I tried this. There seems to be an NUnit.Runners package but when I can add but Monodevelop keeps removing it (from the solution pane) when I right click it and click update because it says that my project does not depend on it. The version that NuGet downloads has this bug too.

Bundled nunit with Mono is deprecated and will be removed please use nuget to obtain the recent version
