MSTest Code Coverage with runsettings

I’ve been fine tuning my code coverage runsettings file for some time now and I’m ready to share it with the world.

You can use it in Visual Studio by setting the test settings file.
select_test_settings_file

In MSBuild you can specify the runsettings file
msbuild_run_settings_file

My current codecoverage.runsettings is listed below. It excludes the .xaml.cs source files since I can only unit test non-GUI code. Also some third party libraries are excluded with the CompanyName tag.

My work as a recruited developer changes almost every month. I like challenges and sharing the solutions with others. On my blog I’ll mostly post about my work, but expect an occasional home project, productivity tip and tooling review.
