MSTest runner in x64 bit mode Edited

I have a couple of issues related to this topic:

1) the MSTest Runner do NOT provide any options to pass additional command line parameters

2) the MSTest Runner uses the runconfig parameter only (no testsettings), which is obsolete since VS 2010

3) no categories can be set (related to 1)

4) cannot be forced to run in x64 mode (ANY-target)

Is there any chance to open up the MSTest runner and allow passing ANY additional parameters?

Additionally, I tried to script it (with testsettings to force the tests run in x64 mode) and use the MsTest Parser to parse the results, but it was not finding the generated trx file, neither provided any detailed log output. I was logging into the build server, and was sure that the trx file was generated in the right folder and had the right file name. The parser task was configured

a) with the specified file name

b) with *.trx

c) with folder name

None of these picked up the results, neither any useful logs were generated.

Any chance to improve the MSTest Parser task and add further details to its log?


Thanks in advance,
