Hey!

Typemock Suggest uses the \"Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll\" to generate its MSTest tests and it searches for it in the GAC.

At the moment VS2017 doesn\'t deploy this DLL in the GAC so it needs to be done manually:

  1. Run Developer Command Prompt for VS2017 as Administrator
  2. Run the command: gacutil.exe /i \"C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Microsoft Visual Studio\\2017\\Professional\\Common7\\IDE\\CommonExtensions\\Microsoft\\TestWindow\\Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll\"
  3. After getting \"Assembly successfully added to the cache\", try running Suggest again.
