Running tests on a local Windows 10/Visual Studio dev environment

I'm prepping to try working on some of the Lean issues in github.  I'm a Mac/Linux JVM guy, so I'm coming up the Win10/VisualStudio/.Net/C# learning curve.

I set up a brand new Win 10, 64 bit development machine.  Clean install.  Fully up-to-date.

I've followed all the tutorials for getting Lean set up in Visual Studio Community Edition 2019, got C# algo running, got Python algo running, installed the Visual Studio extension.

Before I create a feature branch and start making changes, I'd like to be able to run and pass all tests.

I have tried going to Test - Windows - Test Explorer.  The tests are discovered, but they are not run.

When I select an individual test, right-click on it and run it, the Error Message says "Test could not be run.  Check the Tests Output Pane for details."  The Tests Output pane says this:

" Warning] No test matches the given testcase filter `FullyQualifiedName=QuantConnect.Tests.RegressionTests.AlgorithmStatisticsRegression` in C:\Users\username\projects\Lean\Tests\bin\Debug\QuantConnect.Tests.dll"

Is there something that needs to be configured?  Is the only way to run tests by submitting a PR to the QuantConnect CI setup?

Any help would be appreciated.

Kind regards,

   Frank

I'm planning on setting up a local development environment too but on a MacBook Pro. I'm a mobile app developer so I use a Mac for most of my programming. I'll let you know how it goes.

Jason, I don't think that is going to work.  Lean still relies on some Visual Studio capabilities that are only in their Windows version.  (That is, VS Code won't work.  Rider won't work.)  They have a roadmap item to migrate fully to .Net Core, which will help, but that is not complete yet.

My original question still stands.  Anyone out there run tests locally before submitting your changes via PR?
