Running MSTests in TeamCity RRS feed

  • Question

  • For those of you unfamiliar, TeamCity is a continuous integration product made by jetbrains.  I'm attempting to get it to run MSTest 10.0 unit tests, but everything I read says that Visual Studio is required to be installed on the build agent for this to work.  This seems a bit overboard just to run unit tests, and certainly isn't worth the additional licensing just to run unit tests (after all, we could just switch to NUnit, but would prefer not to).  

    Is this some sort of licensing restriction?  Is it possible, trivial, and legal to just put the MsTest exe on the build agent without visual studio?

    Any help would be appreciated.

  • Hi,

    I am not sure about Team City but with VS 2010 only the build service host needs to be installed on the build agent. There is no need to install complete visual studio. However, this is true iof you are using TFS 2010, not sure about Team City.
