I'm trying to run code coverage testing from command line using below commands:

vstest.console.exe CoverTest.dll /EnableCodeCoverage /ResultsDirectory:"C:\btstack\apps\projects\CoverageTest\TestResults\result_1.coverage"

And I'm seeing following error but test is able to proceed.

C:\btstack\apps\projects\CoverageTest\coverage_test>vstest.console.exe CoverTest.dll /EnableCodeCoverage /ResultsDirectory:"C:\btstack\apps\projects\CoverageTest\TestResults"

After I stop the coverage I'm not able to see the report getting generated in the location given "C:\btstack\apps\projects\CoverageTest\TestResults\5b7e122b-d0bd-42ca-8592-f4f68ddf235a\ <Empty>"

Please let me know how to solve this.

Thanks!

    Hello Abhishek,

    From the error message, it seems you are trying to use code coverage feature in Visual Studio 2019 community version(run with vstest.console.exe command line). Actually, the code coverage feature is available only in Visual Studio Enterprise edition, please refer to this document Code Coverage -- Requirements.

    Please try to use VS Enterprise and use vstest.console.exe command line again to use code coverage feature.

    Sincerely,
    Tianyu

    Hi Sun,

    Thanks for the quick reply. I corrected the env variable with the correct path and now the report is getting generated.
