We just upgraded our app to .NET 4.7 and everything built ok.
The build pulls in Nunit 3.8.1(Restoring NuGet package NUnit.3.8.1) but then uses the NUnit 3.6 runner.

1) Error :
Could not load file or assembly 'nunit.framework' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

Can we change to 3.8 runner if not when will you support it.

    Hi Richard,

    Could you please help us with a repro? I tried to reproduce in this build, but could not.

    Also I am little bit surprised how it builds OK after upgrade to .NET 4.7, while this issue is still open.

    Anyway I filed issue to update NUnit.

    Hi Richard,

    I could not find the build with version 1.0.646, maybe you deleted it? Anyway I see that it works now for you. Could you please clarify if it fixed and if yes, what was the actual problem?

    Side question: why do you connect your project to AppVeyor as a generic Git instead of GitHub? With this approach you are loosing number of benefits of AppVeyor/GitHub integration, such as appveyor.yml, pull requests, tags support and many more...
