What is NCover Desktop?
NCover Desktop is a major leap forward in the ease and flexibility of code coverage tools. Code coverage, gathered while testing your .NET code, shows the NCover user what code was exercised during the test and gives a specific measurement of unit test coverage. By tracking these statistics over time, you gain a concrete measurement of code quality during the development cycle. The core of the NCover application is a Windows Service which starts automatically and runs continuously in the background of your OS (Windows XP and higher). NCover can monitor .NET version 2.0 and higher applications and Silverlight 4.0 and higher.
Visual Studio Integration
During the NCover Desktop install, you'll have the option of including the Visual Studio 2008, 2010, and 2012 extensions.
The NCover Bolt VS extension is a multi-platform .NET test runner that works with both MSTest and NUnit tests. Bolt offers built-in code coverage that displays unit test results, timings, branch visualization and source code highlighting right in the Visual Studio IDE.
