Visual Studio 2017 Not Discovering Test Cases

After obtaining xunit through the nugut package explorer and failing to find the option to select it as a Test Framework, I decided to use the MSTestv2 framework. Oddly enough, Visual Studio 2017 can't seem to discover any of the test cases generated by the scaffolding. Any tips? Thanks.

Had the same issue. But I've discovered that MSTestv2 framework has different test methods from Xunit. Although the name is sometimes similar, you may want to use Xunit if you want to completely follow along this series. For example, I got stuck on the "Isolation Testing" tutorial from this series because I couldn't find the Xunit "Assert.All()" equivalent for MSTestv2 framework.

Also, I my opinion this specific tutorial should be updated.
