Once in a while the automatic Fakes generation might fail. Below is a few hint on how to start debugging.

This kicks off the actual generation of the fakes assemblies when you build the project.
To get detailed debugging information you can set Diagnostic=”true” Verbosity=”Verbose” in the .fakes file:
To actually se the output when building also make sure to set the MSBuild output verbosity to Diagnostics in Options -> Proejcts and Solutions -> Build and Run:
This will output a lot of details:
E.g. this show that the Fakes framework is actually creating a f.csproj to build the fake assembly:
As a next step you can go to disk and open this project just like any other project.
