Test Explorer in VS2013 doesn't show messages of Standard Library exceptions RRS feed

  • Question

  • If a std::exception is thrown from my code, Test Explorer will just show "Message: Unhandled C++ Exception". An example:

    namespace UnitTest1
        void ProductionCode() { throw runtime_error("Foobar"); }


    Here, I expect Test Explorer to say "Message: Foobar", but it doesn't. Is it possible to make it recognize Standard Library exceptions, or do I just have some settings wrong?

  • Hi,

    I tried your code on my Visual Studio 2012. I got the same result with you. I doubt that Visual C++ native unit test can’t recognize Standard Library exceptions. I suggest you should try to catch the exception and then output the exception message using some C++ output method.

    Also you could get the issue confirmed and diagnose by product team.
