Release Notes: July 4, 2015

Visual Studio Runner 2.0.1 RC 1

For information on using from within Visual Studio, see Running tests in Visual Studio.

The NuGet package manager GUI in Visual Studio (prior to 2015) does not let you specify the version of a package you wish to install (or upgrade to). Since there are later pre-release builds of the Visual Studio runner on, you will need to use the Package Manager Console window inside Visual Studio to install this build. To do so, show the console via View > Other Windows > Package Manager Console, then type the following command into the console window:

Update-Package xunit.runner.visualstudio -Version 2.0.1-rc1-build1078

This will update the Visual Studio runner package reference in all test projects in the currently open solution.
