Running NUnit tests on .NET 4 assemblies with MSBuild Part 2

Yesterday, I posted a way to run NUnit tests on .NET 4 assembles with MSBuild. Although it worked, I was not 100% happy with the way of going about it. Thanks to a comment from Travis Laborde, I can now present a simpler way, making use of the exec task in MSBuild and the /framework switch on nunit-console.exe. Here’s the project file syntax:

<Target Name="Test2" DependsOnTargets="Build">
  <exec 
     command="&quot;C:\Program Files\NUnit 2.5.5\bin\net-2.0\nunit-console.exe&quot; /framework=4.0.30319 @(TestAssembly)">
     WorkingDirectory="."
  </exec>
</Target>
