Hello,

I'm seeing this strange error, when running my tests.
I'm trying to run javascript tests inside .NET Core project in CS 2022.

    Hi,

    I followed the tutorial here.
    So I installed Microsoft.JavaScript.UnitTest NuGet package.
    Put

    <PropertyGroup>
    ...
    <JavaScriptTestRoot>tests\</JavaScriptTestRoot>
    <JavaScriptTestFramework>Mocha</JavaScriptTestFramework>
    <GenerateProgramFile>false</GenerateProgramFile>
    </PropertyGroup>

    into my csproj.
    Put package.json into project root. My package.json contains

    {
    "version": "1.0.0",
    "name": "asp.net",
    "private": true,
    "devDependencies": {
    "mocha": "8.3.0",
    "tape": "latest"
    }
    }

    My sample test is

    describe('Test Suite 1', function () {
    it('getData',
    function() {
    return true;
    });
    })
