Does TC5 + NCover 1.5 generate the html report?

I'm using the VS2008 solution build runner to run my tests and produce code coverage stats. I've managed to get it running but when I click on the build results I only get the "Code Coverage Summary" and the artifacts tab only includes CoverageReport.xml. I've looked at the build log and there seems to be a problem with NCoverExplorer.Console.exe (I've highlighted the error in bold):

14:13:06]: [Generate HTML report] Started NCover Explorer: "C:\Program Files\NCover\NCoverExplorer\NCoverExplorer.Console.exe" C:\BuildAgent\temp\buildTmp\tmpA667.tmp /html:C:\BuildAgent\temp\buildTmp\NCover26310Report\index.html /report:1 "/project:BarrHibb.Common-Trunk :: Code Coverage" /sort:0 //or FullCoverageReport:Html:{}

Any idea why the path format is causing problems?

I've got one step further forward. I'm using an older version of NCoverExplorer ( and so need to change the arguments passed to it to /r:ModuleClassFunctionSummary.

However, once I do that I am in the same situation as this: i.e. I have the artifact but no Code Coverage tab.

Figured it out. The code coverage report tab need the base path to be and the start page to be index.html
