Hi Akash,

The output for the "cover" command is a DCVR snapshot file. Please, use the "analyze" command instead of "cover": 

dotcover analyze /TargetExecutable="C:\Program Files (x86)\NUnit 2.6.3\bin\nunit-console.exe" /TargetArguments="D:\Tests\bin\Debug\Tests.dll"  /Output="AppCoverageReport.html"  /ReportType="HTML"
