    Hello,

    when I select a single unit test in the Test Explorer of a embedded project with a simulation platform visual freezes.

     

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Follow the Creating Simulation Platforms to Test Embedded Code without Hardware tutorial until step 14 to have working embedded demo project with a simulation platform active.
    2. Note that running all unit tests works fine.
    3. Note that selecting or running a test group (“DemoTestGroup”) works fine.
    4. However, when selecting a single test (e.g. “FailingTest”) in the Test Explorer Visual Studio freezes and must be closed via Task Manager

    Visual Studio Profesional 2019 Version 16.11.2
    VisualGDB Version: 5.6 (Beta 4, build 4225)

    Hi,

    Please try attaching another Visual Studio instance to the frozen one and obtaining the call stack as shown on this page. Please attach the call stack here and we will investigate it further.

    Thanks, we have reproduced the problem on our side. Turns out, the latest Visual Studio 2019 freezes when trying to select a test without a source location (this only affects the simulation platform, as VisualGDB does not support parsing of the DWARF symbols in Win32 EXEs).

    We have updated VisualGDB to report a dummy location for these tests. Please try this build: VisualGDB-5.6.5.4323.msi
