Visual Studio 2017 profession edition does not support "Run auto tests after every build" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Our WPF solution includes auto tests. In Visual Studio 2013, after each building, it automatically run auto unit tests. This helps us to ensure that code changes do not break code unintentional.

    We just notice that Visual Studio 2017 profession edition does not support "Run tests after every build".

    In the link: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/test/run-unit-tests-with-test-explorer?view=vs-2017

    we see the following:

    Run tests after every build

    TABLE 1
    Button Description
    Run after build To run your unit tests after each local build, choose Test on the standard menu, and then choose Run Tests After Build on the Test Explorer toolbar.


    Running unit tests after each build requires Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise or Visual Studio 2019. In Visual Studio 2019 it is included in Community and Professional as well as Enterprise.

    It seems that we have updated to Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise edition or Visual Studio 2019. If we do not have a plan to update to newer version VS2019, do we have another solution? thx!
