Visual Studio Test Explorer does not find the tests


I'm having a problem with Visual Studio 2013, Test Explorer is not loading the tests at any time, either after Build or through Run Tests / CTRL+R, T . Does anyone have any clue what that might be?

I have the following packages installed through NuGet: , Runners , Fluent Assertions , and the test below as an example:

using Xunit;
namespace Registro
    public class CadastroValidoRecebido
        public void Usuario_Adicionado_Ao_Sistema()


I followed the links of several links, what seemed most promising were the processor architecture changes reported in the link below, but Test Explorer still does not find the tests.

As I recall, Visual Studio does not recognize third-party tests (that is, other than MSTest) automatically, requiring the installation of additional packages.

Take a look at this for xunit (I'm not sure if it's this, but please try it): runner for Visual Studio 2012 and 2013

You can also try the Resharper ... it gets paid, but I'm absolutely a fan of the tool. From what I read about it, it supports xunit via plugins.

With the latest version of xUnit.Net is already possible, according to the documentation ( link ) it is necessary to install via package nuget xunit.runner.visualstudio

With this, xUnit is integrated with Test Explorer
