Item

Description

General

Default platform architecture

This selector allows choosing a platform to run unit tests on.

Default .NET Framework version

This selector allows setting .NET version to use when running unit tests.

Unit Test Sessions

Save and restore Unit Test Sessions

Select this check box to allow JetBrains Rider to restore unit test sessions when you close and reopen Rider.

Unit Test Output

Wrap long lines in Unit Test Session output

Defines how to display long lines in the Output tab in the Unit Tests window. If this check box is selected, long lines are wrapped.

Unit Test Runner

Shadow-copy assemblies being tested

If this check box is selected, assemblies being tested are subject to shadow-copying. So even while the tests are running, assemblies can be rebuilt.

Use separate AppDomain for each assembly with tests

This option applies to MSTest and NUnit tests and lets the test runner start each test assembly in its own Application Domain. It may come in handy in the following situations:
  • You need to use different app.config files for different test assemblies.

  • You use reflection in tests.

Check for hanging test execution

By default, JetBrains Rider notifies you if there is no response from the test execution process.
You may want to disable this option if there is some code that could take long when executing after tests are finished (SetupFixture TearDown, Class TearDown).
