[vtkusers] Activiz.NET and NUnit: disable shadow copying required

Dear all,

Not so much a question as a report on solving a problem with Activiz.NET and NUnit that had me puzzled for a couple of days.

When running NUnit unit tests, by default a shadow copy of the tested assembly is made to improve performance of NUnit. This option, however, does not play nice with Kitware.mummy.Runtime resulting in a rather cryptic error: System.Exception : error: could not get registered type - mteIndex='0' className=''.

To disable NUnit shadow copying on the commandline use the /noshadow switch. In the NUnit GUI this can be done too.

Best wishes,

Menno Deij
