66.7% of the tests fail - what do I do wrong?

Apr 9, 2014 at 6:50 PM
I tried to follow the DEVGUIDE.html and now I'm hanging at point 5) "running tests".

"RunTests.cmd fsharp" gives the following result:

32 tests passed (33.33%)
64 tests failed (66.67%)
0 tests were cascaded failures (0.00%)
0 tests returned "no result" (0.00%)
0 tests timed out (0.00%)
0 tests had test errors (0.00%)

96 Total executed tests
66 tests were skipped

162 Total tests (executed & skipped)

8m 10s Total time"

How can I find out what's wrong? I read the TESTGUIDE.html but can't really see the issue.

I'm not sure what could be causing this. Does it still occur with latest sources? I've verified on multiple machines (and with some other people) that the tests work ok, with only isolated failures.

Test logs are dropped to the "tests" directory, with filename either FSharp_Failures.log or FSharpQA_Failures.log. This should help you track down what could be happening.

Ok thanks. I'll test it on another machine. Maybe I can find my problem.

With the latest sources (and building them from VS x86 command promt) most tests passed. Thanks Lincoln
