Running two test projects using only one config file


I have two test projects (two target dlls) under one solution, and I want to run the dotCover for both of them. Is it possible to run more than one test project using only one dotCover configuration file, I mean is it possible to run more than one targetargument using the same configuration file? I have tried to add more than one <targetarguments> tag, but dotCover uses only the last one to run the analysis.

Thanks for any answer!


Hello Firas,
If you are using console runner, it is possible to specify only one target executable in one configuration file.
Options are the following:
- you can configure your test runner to execute tests from both assemblies
- you can perform several consequent coverage sessions and merge all of the results afterwards
- you can run unit tests from Visual Studio with ReSharper, dotCover has a good integration with it


Hello Ruslan,

Thanks a lot for your answer.

Sorry, I was not clear enough: Yes. I am using the console runner. The problem actually was, that I wanted to integrate dotCover in the build, so that it runs all the tests automatically while creating the Build. I found the solution to this problem, and it was simpler than I thought :) ;):

It is possible to add more than a test in the tag <TargetArguments> by separating them with a blank, like <TargetArguments>c:\Tests\Test1.dll c:\Tests\test2.dll</TargetArguments>
The dotCover will run both tests and make only one result file.
