MSTest unable to parse results

I'm attempting to get Bamboo on-demand to run a test using MSTest. It appears to run the test but then fails parsing it afterwards. What could I be doing wrong?

Failing task since test cases were expected but none were found.

If I add an MSTest Parser task then that fails also. With the same error.

Bamboo on-demand only allows the generation of .trx files. It validates this in the UI. I could run the MSTest.exe directly and possibly generate an .xml files but I chose not to do this.

I resolved this by changing the 'Results filename' value from:

"${}\<filename>.trx" to just "<filename>.trx"

Maybe it was the backslash causing the issue...

This also fixed my issue

This fixed my issue too. Using "**/*.trx" works.

I wonder if it is a relative path so putting "${}/...." for the Results filename causes issues. Can't find any logs that show what the full path it is trying to use but I bet that is the problem.

Chris - try generating the test file to an .xml format
