Run Unit Tests in Visual Studio after locally building your Solution !

Ever felt the need to run unit tests as a part of building your solution locally?Yeah,that sounds like you can do fix/break solution immediately 🙂 Ok,s before we jump to conclusions and go overboard, let us see how we can do this in VS2010.Like you would have already guessed there is an extension called “Continuous Testing for Visual Studio 2010“. Download it from here.Since its free and from Visual Studio Gallery ,I was tempted to install it.So just build it and saw that all my tests were failing as usual! Also in case you are pissed off that your test cases failed and dont want this feature you can always disable it from the Extension Manager from Tools Menu in Visual Studio.Here is the output post building locally,not great though 🙂

BTW i had read posts that you can execute MSTest.exe from build events using commands,but i was facing some issue with it .So do let me know if you work with that as well.Anyways Continous Testing works great.So let me build and break with more abandon!
