All of our managed assemblies are build with the
any cpu target and we can use both the 32-bit and 64-bit task runner of Azure Pipelines.
One of our projects uses a C++ DLL that is either in 32-bit or 64-bit and we need a specific test runner (the 64-bit one to be exact) to not fail with a
By default the Visual Studio test runner will start a 32-bit process. If you need to use the 64-bit version you need to specify extra arguments with supplying
otherConsoleOptions to the task:
- task: VSTest@2 displayName: Run tests inputs: testAssemblyVer2: | **\bin\$(BuildConfiguration)\**\*Test.dll !**\obj\** !**\xunit.runner.visualstudio.testadapter.dll !**\xunit.runner.visualstudio.dotnetcore.testadapter.dll runTestsInIsolation: true codeCoverageEnabled: true otherConsoleOptions: '/Platform:x64'
Note: The Visual Studio Test task sports a parameter called
platform which does not change the architecture of the test runner executable.
