When I attempt to change the Target Framework version from 4 to 3.5 for a Unit Test C# project by following the description in this article https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/483939/unable-to-change-target-framework-version-on-unit-test-projects?wa=wsignin1.0

  1. Unload the test project
  2. Edit the xxxx.csproj
  3. Remove {3AC096D0-A1C2-E12C-1390-A8335801FDAB}; from ProjectTypeGuids
  4. Change the TargetFrameworkVersion to v3.5 (Save)
  5. Reload the project
  6. Change the reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll as specified in the other workaround.

I am not able to find Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll v9.0.

VS2010 SP1 shall solve this problem.

Anyone who are running VS2010 UnitTest without VS2010 SP1?

It seems like MSTest is not an option until VS2010 SP1.

For the time being I use NUnit (projekt must be targeting framework 3.5) and TestDriven.net, and that works just fine.
