The Desktop user guide isn't intended to be a complete list of all the possible scenarios for collecting coverage data. However, if you understand how code coverage works, you can apply this principle to any project.
NCover 4 runs as a service, which means it's always monitoring and ready to cover any .NET code executing on your machine. This ability to gather data globally is key to understanding how to leverage the power of NCover 4.
When setting up any project, the first question you should ask is What process do I want to cover?
If you can answer this question in the form of a match rule that tells NCover how to find the executable or service that's exercising your source code, you can collect detailed coverage data and metrics.
The coverage scenarios in this section will guide you with examples of how to profile your tested code in a variety of environments.
