Hello ching ping,
The feedback you are describing is expected. Here is what is going on:
- You tell the solution to build (or otherwise begin compilation)
- The application sees a coded file named the same as your "excluded" test, it is added to the queue to compile
- The compiler looks for what is referenced (your excluded test)
- The compiler cannot find the test, since it is excluded, and returns an error saying it is not referenced correctly
Please let us know if you manually added the test to the excluded list, or if you did this using the GUI. If you manually added the item to the exclusions, you will need to add the .cs file(s) for the test to the excluded list that you are referencing before the test can compile again.
The issue Cody was discussing was for QA edition. In QA edition only, if you exclude a test that has a code behind step it does not exclude the .cs file associated as well (so they will see this error at times). Since you are using Dev edition you should not need to worry about this as we have not been able to reproduce this within Developer edition. You should only be seeing this if the item was manually added to the exclusion list but not the .cs file as well.
