Does this work?

Before I waste any more time, can anyone confirm if this is a completed and works-as-advertised project?

After following the documentation I get

"The type or namespace name 'Test' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"
"The type or namespace name 'TestFixture' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

I've added the Reference to Roaster.Core, and included a "using Roaster.Core".

If I say "using Roaster.Core.Reflection;" the complaint about "TestFixture" changes to "Roaster.Core.Reflection.TestFixture" is not an attribute class".  So it finds a class by that name which does not extend System.Attribute.

Not much activity here so I'm fearing this thing doesn't work at all :(

Yes it works. These were my noobie hurdles...

1) Add these headers to BankAccountTests.cs
using Roaster.Core;
using Roaster.Core.Attributes;
using Roaster.FirstApp.Business;
2) Don't forget to deploy the testrunner CAB onto the emulator/device.
I got it onto the emulator by sharing a directory File->Configure->Shared folder
If you restart the emulator image you have to reinstall the CAB of course.
I suppose I get it onto the device with activesync.

3) Which file to run?
Set the unitTest project as the startup project, not the 'business' project.
If you're getting a message on your desktop saying it can't find the runner then check you've installed the CAB and where it is; Start external program "\program files\roaster unit test runner\roaster.client.runner.exe" worked for me (no quotes).

However I had some difficulty working out what to pass as the filename to the runner via "Command line arguments". In the end I've set the Build->Output path to the shared folder so I could see what the heck it was deploying from the luxury of my desktop. Thus my command line arguments are "\storage card\Roaster.FirstApp.UnitTest.dll" (with quotes).

Tada! Unit tests. Awesome. Sorry I ever doubted you.

Now if I can work out how to drop messages into the test output panes I'll be truly stoked.

Glad it finally worked for you!
Sorry for the "abandoned" look of the project, you're right there's not much activity anymore.
This project is something I wrote for my team at the company I work for and it met the goal as it is. It's in fact used everyday by 14 developers.
I just wanted to share it because it was very nice for us to write unit tests for the handhelds and I wanted someone else to get the same benefit.
If you're using it and works for you, I met my goal!

If you made any improve share it back here I just added you as contributor.
