I have 2 sites currently running on AppVeyor, both have tests in the same place. One is a 2010 solution which is running the tests (NUnit) fine, the other is a 2012 solution converted from 2010 but it is not running any of the unit tests (NUnit) giving a result of 0/0.

    Hi Francis,

    I'm looking into that now. I will let you know about my findings.

    OK, found it.

    There was a problem with "Cloak.NUnit.dll" assembly. To determine what should be tested AppVeyor seeks for assemblies referencing "nunit.framework.dll" and then pass all assemblies to nunit-console.exe as a single command. Cloak.NUnit.dll is referencing nunit.framework.dll of old version 2.5.x causing an exception in NUnit console.

    Solution: open project settings, go to "Tests" section, click Add assembly and enter Cloak.NUnit.dll (add it to the list of excluded assemblies). Save settings. Should work like a charm.

    In the meantime I will file a change request to run NUnit separately for each assembly with unit tests.
