Intel Inspector: Not able to run tests run by Visual Studio's vstest.console.exe

I have test cases in my Visual Studio 2019 solution. It is run by Visual studio by calling the vstest.console.exe. Now I need to check memory leak by running these test cases. Not able to do that using Intel Inspector.

Inputs given by me in Project properties are:

Application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\Extensions\TestPlatform\vstest.console.exe

Application parameters: /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll

Working directory: C:\Projects\TwoOPT\Code\bin\x64\Debug (same which have TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll)

 

I get error:

Error: Analysis terminated abnormally.

Application exit code: -1

 

Please let me know what mistake I am doing in providing inputs in project properties. Thanks.

Thank you for your response. The installer used was w_inspector_oneapi_p_2023.0.0.25545.exe

The attached images shows the error message and details.

Please provide guidance in troubleshooting the failure. Thanks.

Did you try with one simple sample, like matrix sample, you can see, the below matrix sample is run by VS in local, and the Inspector can work.

Yes, it works. I created another new console application and giving the path to this console application also works.

 

What I am struggling is to run the Intel Inspector for VSTest.Console.exe which is the command-line tool to run tests. The details on this exe is https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/visualstudio/test/vstest-console-options?view=vs-2022 

 

I guess I am not properly giving the inputs in Application parameters in Intel Inspector project properties. Any help in this will be really helpful.

 

Application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\Extensions\TestPlatform\vstest.console.exe

Application parameters: /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll

Working directory: C:\Projects\TwoOPT\Code\bin\x64\Debug (same which have TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll)

Just running application with parameters as below can work?

 

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\Extensions\TestPlatform\vstest.console.exe  /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll

 

From the guide you shared,  there is no need to add '/' , just needs file name, right?

vstest.console.exe myTestProject.dll

1.

Application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\Extensions\TestPlatform\vstest.console.exe

Application parameters: /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll

Working directory: C:\Projects\TwoOPT\Code\bin\x64\Debug

So I think you need to confirm app + parameters can work first, and then using Inspector to run app + parameters.

Thanks for your reply. Sorry, didn't understand. app + parameters in the Application: field?

or something else.

 

The gist of the problem is that when I run console application and call the exe vstest.console.exe with parameters /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll, it works. 

 

But if I provide them as below to Intel Inspector, it doesn't work.

 

Application: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Professional\Common7\IDE\Extensions\TestPlatform\vstest.console.exe

Application parameters: /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll

Working directory: C:\Projects\TwoOPT\Code\bin\x64\Debug (same which have TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll)

 

I will check some more documentation, meanwhile any more pointers from anyone will be helpful.

You can add "vstest.console.exe /testcontainer:TwoOPT_TestSuite_x64.dll" in one script and specify the script to execute in the application field.
