Steps invloved in generating a html report for nunit tests :

1. Download Nunit2report from http://sourceforge.net/projects/nunit2report/ and unzip it to a location just like in the screen shot

2. Download Nant from http://nant.sourceforge.net/ if you don't have already place it in a location suitable to you

3. Once you are in Nunit2Report bin directory - You must have these files just like i have in screen shot

4. Copy all files from the bin directory of Nunit2Report to Nant/bin directory - Just as in screen shot

5. Add reference to Nant with Visual Studio 2010

6. Click on Tools Menu in Visual Studio and click on External Tools - Just like in Screen shot

7. Add details just like i have entered in the external tools configuration for nant

8. You can either follow step 7 for integrating Nant with Visual studio or just create a batch file with details $NANT_HOME\bin\nant.exe -buildfile

9. Let's look at how our build file looks - Have a look at the screen shot
