    I have the following in a test (my first ever JustMock test, I might add)...

    var template = Mock.Create<MessageType>
    Mock.Arrange(() => template.Subject).Returns("This template has Zero tokens.");
    Mock.Arrange(() => template.Body).Returns("This template has {{number}} of {{tokens}}.");

    The class being Mocked looks like this ...

    public class MessageType : BaseBusinessEntity
        public string Body { get; set;}
        public int DigestsToBeIncludedOn { get; set; }
        public Guid MessageReference { get; set; }
        public int MessageTypeId { get; set; }
        public string Name { get; set; }
        public int PredefinedRecipients { get; set; }
        public string Subject { get; set; }

    When I attempt to run the test I get ...

    Can anyone point out what I've done wrong?

    Hi Stuart,

    It appears that the profiler is not enabled. You should enable the JustMock Profiler from the JustMock menu in Visual Studio.

    Please refer to our knowledge base article explaining how to tackle "profiler not enabled" issues.
