I suggest you ...

Provide Microsoft Fakes with all Visual Studio editions

Include Microsoft Fakes with all editions of Visual Studio including Professional edition rather than being restricted to developers with Ultimate editions of Visual Studio. This will allow all Visual Studio developers to leverage the capabilities of the Fakes mocking library since mocking/stubbing is a necessary part of every developer's Unit Testing toolbelt.

        Not completed, This should be available in VS professional as well. Wouldn't you rather your vendors be able to properly use test driven development to provide a better service to your(and our) customers?

        This is not complete. To actually be able to properly unit test, the fakes framework is a must. While pushing it to premium is a nice bone to throw us, it still costs over $6k to get a license for it. To do proper TDD, you are essentially telling developers to pay you $6000 for something that is free in other languages. Putting the fakes framework in all versions of Visual Studio would be a HUGE draw for developers deciding to use .NET or another stack for their products.

        This item is marked as complete. But, it is not. Adding Fakes to VS Premium is awesome and appreciated. But, VS Professional supports Unit Tests but still not Fakes. Please add Fakes to VS Professional too.

        This high license price has put Microsoft Fakes out of the reach of many developers. It would be very reasonable to make Fakes a standard feature on ALL VERSIONS of Visual Studio. This is hurting many of us who provide solutions with Visual Studio.

        Please help us to be better professionals and add this feature in ALL (yes ALL!) editions of Visual Studio.

        Ok. The title is "provide this in ALL visual studio editions," and you made it "completed" by providing it in one additional edition that is still out of reach for many. Nice job "completing" it. I could imagine the chaos that would ensue if Microsoft employees "completed" their tasks the same way you "completed" this task.

        This is so lame, why mark is as complete when it didn't satisfy as what was requested.
        Didn't anyone from Microsoft see the word "all" Visual Studio editions

        Microsoft are treating a fundamental necessity as a sort of luxury item. What would this look like if we were to transpose it into a different context, for instance car sales?

        I just don't get it. We develop in .net so big companies buys windows OS, in a way we promote microsoft's envirionment, but by the other hand Ms only makes developers to go away and try AND recommend other kind of technology.
        Keep in mind that the most power of developers is out of USA, and we can't afford that very huge ammount of money for a good license.
        The question here is: Do you still want us to recommend .net technologies or keep making us going away to another technologies?

        That is not enough. Many people (including Students) only have access to express and professional editions. This kind of policies is what keeps Microsoft away from University environments. Till Microsoft change this policies I will have my students working with Java and Ruby. :-(

        This is a Migration Blocking Condition for us as well. Fakes is replacing Moles but then blocks access due to license level. Definitely not the right approach here!

      • Brandon HBrandon H commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Sorry guys this simply is not enough. To have a UT mocking framework dependent on the license of an end user seems rather ludicrous to me. You're just forcing your entry market shops to move away from MS stuff little by little. I'm sorely disappointed that the contractors we work with (on Pro only) are now not able to run our UT suites and we will have to move away from Fakes.

        I second that. Have Fakes in professional VS as well, that's what this vote was for in the first place!
