Support for C/C++
It would be awsome if NCrunch could add support for C/C++ (or at least C++ CLI)
Sorry there are no plans to introduce this in the near future.
Support for C++ would require a whole new build, instrumentation and runtime system. It would require a significant effort to both introduce this support and maintain it. At present, there does not appear to be a strong enough business case to warrant the cost of this.
Any update to support C++? I feel the demand may be increasing, yes? Please update.
Native C++ would be awesome. We develop in C++ primarily but also some C# and not having NCrunch there for the C++ stuff is painful. Miss those green dots.
I'm only dependent on my C++/CLI project. I just need it to build. I'm not even testing it.
Native C++ test coverage would be great. Writing code without NCrunch is like walking in the dark with arms outstretched!

Starting back on some native C++ development, I find myself lost without my little black and green dots :)

With the hodge-podge of concepts that C# is turning into, I find myself turning towards C++ more and more. Having NCrunch in C++ would be a big advantage.
I understand that C++ building is a bit more complicated and that the convention for unit testing frameworks is to compile test suite executables instead of test libraries, but if NCrunch supported a freely definable build command and parsed the console output (eg. of the most popular frameworks, Googletest and CppTest) and the reports generated by coverage solutions (eg. Gcov and CovTool) it could already reach feature parity with .NET.

I am working in the field of measurement devices. Due to that we choosed CSharp as a fast productive language. Nevertheless we often deal with third party libaries which are written in C/C++ (native). This libraries are included with C++ managed. It would be awesome if you support C/C++ (native and CLR) in NCrunch!

My company would buy quite a few company seats if this happened. We are using google test. Thanks.
