Resharper Ultimate 2016.3.2 is failing to run tests in NET462 using VS2015 (Inconclusive)

My resharper ultimate is having trouble running my unit tests(NUnit v3.6.1) targetting NET462. It keeps reporting results as being 'inconclusive'. No amount of clearing the cache or restarting Visual Studio is helping.

Resharper also simply does not find any tests when I try opening it up in VS2017. 

A few combos I have tried: 

 - Specifying a specific folder for NUnit using v3.6.1. Did not help. 

 - Switched off Shadow Copying of Assemblies. 

 - Disabled parallelisation of tests 

Not sure how to progress this issue. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Gavin

1) What are types of projects - .NET core (old one with project json or new one with csproj) or standard one? 

2) As for collecting log files:

Test Runner log file:

- Run Visual Studio with the following command line key: /ReSharper.Internal
- Open ReSharper | Options | Tools | Unit Testing page | Internal Options | Enable logging;
- Then reproduce the issue you experience;
- Zip all "JetBrains_ReSharper_TaskRunner_CLR45_x64.{some timestamp}.log" files from "%Temp%/JetLogs" to an archive 

ReSharper log file:


- Run Visual Studio with the following command line: 'devenv /ReSharper.LogFile C:\log\resharper_log.txt /ReSharper.LogLevel Verbose';
- After that reproduce the issue;
- Zip 'resharper_log.txt' file to an archive.

Then use "Submit a request" button at the top of the page to send files to us.


Update: I managed to get my tests running after re-installing resharper, so I appreciate this will be hard to investigate from your end in the absence of logs. I am still having trouble getting the tests to run when I upgrade the project to net462. This is both on VS2015 and VS2017. I would love it if someone from JetBrains could instruct me on how to get a log from the test runner then I can upload it for analysis.
