All of my projects come up with the following error when I go to run tests. This is Visual Studio 2010 and NCrunch version 1.35b. This is the only version of NCrunch that has been installed on this machine.

Microsoft.Build.Exceptions.InvalidProjectFileException: The expression "[MSBuild]::GetDirectoryNameOfFileAbove('', enlistment.settings)" cannot be evaluated. The path is not of a legal form.

Hi, thanks for posting! Do you have any build customisations or build-integrated SDKs that make use of the GetDirectoryNameOfFileAbove function? It looks as though this is interfering with NCrunch's build analysis - we need to find a way to turn it off.

Same problem here, VS 2010 Pro + NCrunch 1.35.0.16b. This was the first thing that happened after installing and trying to enable NCrunch. Definitely a non-starter for me. Same goes for not being able to reference projects outside the solution directory (if I understood the issue correctly, never got that far).

We use GetDirectoryNameOfFileAbove in order to include some global build settings for certain types of projects in different solutions.

My suspicion is that there may be file that you manually need to include using the AdditionalFilesToInclude setting. Check that your global build settings files are being picked up in the NCrunch workspace - you can view the workspace by right clicking on the project in the tests window and choosing to browse to it.

NCrunch should be able to handle situations where projects exist outside of the solution directory - though there is a known problem for referencing projects that are outside the solution itself (for example, solution includes only project A, but project A also references project B which isn't in the solution).
