Unit Tests VS 2013 - Manifest references file 'vstest.executionengine.appcontainer.exe' which is not part of the payload RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am working on a Windows 8.1 Store App and I created Unit Tests. Last week everything worked out fine, but since a few days I am not able to build my Unit-Test-Projects.

    Every Unit-Test-Project has the following two errors:

    • Manifest references file 'vstest.executionengine.appcontainer.exe' which is not part of the payload. [PathToTest].Logic.Tests\Package.appxmanifest
    • Manifest references file 'vstest.executionengine.appcontainer.x86.exe' which is not part of the payload. [PathToTest].Logic.Tests\Package.appxmanifest

    I already tried to re-install VS 2013 with no success.

    Any ideas?

  • I found a solution by recreating all UnitTestLibraries and moving the existing CodeFiles from the old UnitTestLibraries into the new UnitTestLibraries.
