Any help would be appreciated.  Note: i can find nuint.framework in the GAC.

  1. NUnit won’t be in the GAC. On my machine it is here

    C:Program FilesNUnit V2.1bin

    Add you reference to that directory.

    Their web site should document this, as well as how to run NUnit GUI.

  2. Cyrus Najmabadi says:

    Interesting. It’s definitely in my GAC 🙂

  3. Its not in the GAC on my machine. I always reference it from program files.

  4. Very very weird then 🙂

    I have since moved to referencing it directly as that solves this issue. Unfortauntely, more issues have arisen that i don’t know how to work around.
