I have a few projects some xUnit and some NUnit and use script for build but not unit tests. Now discovery none of my projects has been working and I have used wildcard **\*.Tests.dll to no avail. All my test projects end with .Tests so this should work, no?

    Well, it looks like all Tests project are just disabled to build in Release configuration, right? If you try searching for Tests in a build log you'll find nothing.
