last week my project manager asked me to do training for our colleagues on Unit testing with Nunit. So I thought better to use VS 2005 with new inbuilt unit testing capabilities. I had installed VS Professional edition and I knew that Unit testing is not coming with that edition. I knew that we have VS team edition for architects also and I installed it. But after I installed it I couldn’t found built-in unit testing there. I thought this may be an installation problem or I haven’t to configure VS for unit testing. So I played some times with IDE’s configuration settings but didn’t succeed. (Anyway I found another interesting setting that always shows you the solution in Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Architects like in other editions(I know professional edition does). Otherwise it won’t show you the solution just after you add a project. Damn... I don’t know why VS team came up with this kinda default setting.)

I tried googling but didn’t come with a solution. But some times later my friend Prasanna told me that VS team edition for architects doesn’t contains inbuilt unit testing. What’s the …. Seems like architects don’t won’t to know abt unit testing. (hay I’m not a architect right… just installed the edition what we have)

Prass send me this link which compares all Visual Studio Editions. Thx man.

Seems like we have to go for the Team Suite. But I don’t think its worth to go for since we have kinda inbuilt process following and using good source control system too. We are using perforce for source control management. It works great.

The Team Edition for Developers as well as the Team Edition for Testers includes the unit testing tools. I personally like the Developers edition the best. It's the most well-rounded in my opinion.

Ya Anthony. I think the person who purchased visual studio 2005 for our company has done the mistake. He might have thought that the Visual Studio Team Edition for Software Architects have all features since Visual Studio 2003 Enterprice Architech Edition was the most powerful edition.
