Create Coverage snapshot with cmdline-dotcover - open in VisualStudio-dotcover?



I'm using the command line dotcover.exe to create a coverage snapshot.

Afterwards I want to open it in the VisualStudio-integrated version of dotcover.

But unfortunately in Visual Studio the snapshot is empty! Although I successfully created a html report of the respecting coverage snapshot.


Am I doing something wrong? This is the command line i use for snapshot creation:


C:\Program Files (x86)\JetBrains\dotCover\v2.5\Bin\dotCover.exe cover


/targetarguments="/labels /nologo /noshadow /nothread /xml:c:\6040.2\Trunk\Buildoutput\Debug\..\TestResults\CoverageWebinarLibrary1.Tests.TestResult.xml /exclude:Explicit c:\Users\csponsel\Documents\CoverageWebinar_2014\CoverageWebinar\CoverageWebinarLibrary1.Tests\bin\Debug\CoverageWebinarLibrary1.Tests.dll"

/TargetWorkingDir=c:\6040.2\Trunk\Buildoutput\Debug /Filters="+:module=CoverageWebinarLibrary1;"-:module=*.Tests



I'm using dotcover 2.5.

I also attached the respecting coverage snapshot.


Kind regards,

Hi Carsten,
By default dotCover matches coverage snapshot with current solution structure and hides results for assemblies which do not have matching projects.
You can disable this behaviour with a corresponding button on the coverage results toolbar.
