dotCover and "Inconclusive: Test not run"

Hello all,

I've got ReSharper and docCover installed in a VS2013 environment. When I attempt to "Cover Unit Tests", I get "Inconclusive: Test not run".

I've turned on logging using the "Cover Configuration/Expert Options", but the log output is fairly cryptic and i cant determine what's wrong.  There /is/ a hint of an error at the end of the log:

00006A78 0 00000000 SEU::Term

00006A78 0 00000000 VEH was uninitialized

I've attached the log here.  Anyone have any advice for getting this up and running?



Hello Anthony,

Could you please provide a bit more details on your case:
- what testing framework do you use (NUnit, MSTest, other)?
- in case of MSTest do you use some .testsettings/.runsettings configuration files?
- do you experience the same problem when you run/debug your tests without coverage?

Thanks in advance. Best regards.


Hi Ekaterina - thanks for the reply.

These particular tests are using:

- xUnit.abstractions (
- xUnit.assert (
- xUnit.core (

No .testsettings or .runsettings files.

Tests run fine when just doing a "Run Unit Tests" - no errors. But when doing "Cover Unit Tests", in addition to the "inconclusive" error, I am seeing the attached Unit Test Runner error as well.



Hi Anthony,

Could you please make sure that you don't use a delay signing for the problem assembly?

If that's not the point, could you please:
- tell me what version of the Test Support for Resharper extension you use;
- take a screenshot of the error message one more time with the details section unfolded (see an arrow in the bottom left corner of the window);
- start VS with dotCover logging turned on and send me log files. In order to get dotCover log files please start VS with the following command line arguments: devenv.exe /ReSharper.LogFile. Log files will be saved in the '%Temp%\JetLogs' folder with auto-generated names, so empty this folder before you launch VS.

Best regards.


Sorry, a small correction. In order to turn on dotCover logs please start VS with the following command line keys: devenv.exe /ReSharper.LogLevel Verbose /ReSharper.LogFile.
