I installed the trial edition of TypeMock and reference the TypeMock.dll file in my project.

I then added the following code

Mock manager = MockManager.Mock(typeof(SomeType));
manager.AlwaysReturn("GetInstance", manager);

When I run the test (the tests are self-executing MbUnit tests) MbUnit throws a FileNotFoundException. I have pasted the IL of the last method in the dump file. Any help you could provide would be appreciated.

There's not enough info here to help resolve this :? .
I'd like you to produce logs to help isolate the problem. I'll send a separate mail with instructions.

I'm curious about what you are trying to achieve with the code. You return "manager", which is of type Mock.

It makes sense, to return a value of any other type you use, not a TypeMock type. The GetInstance should return something else.

See my separate mail for details.

It seemed the original exception was as the result of another exception I hadn't noticed because I had turned off exceptions in Visual Studio. doh!

The manager class is basically a singleton class which is called from the method I'm trying to test. So the method would call


So I was trying to mock out by returning a mock object from the call to GetManager so I could mock out any subsequent calls to that object.

This was the first thing I'd attempted to do so the FileNotFound exception made me think it was a problem with my setup.

Hi everyone,

Richard's problem was that he's running tests inside an executable, rather than inside a process of a runner (e.g. NUnit.exe). When you run an app, this way you get the message:
Could not load file or assembly 'TypeMock, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken?=0000000000000000' or one of its dependencies.

Like all runners, Typemock Isolator needs to be initialized when the process loads. In order to do that, you need to run the process under Typemock's TMockRunner tool. For instance, in the directory when the app is installed, use this:

"c:Program FilesTypemockTypemock IsolatorTMockRunner.exe" TypeMockTest.exe

This treats the exe as a runner and initializes typemock as it loads.
