Failing tests

I just checked out the NPOI code from and built it in VS 2008 Professional.  I'm getting 324 failed unit tests, and they all seem to be caused by exceptions like this:

`Unable to create instance of class TestCases.DDF.TestEscherBlipRecord. Error:  System.IO.IOException: Data dir '..\..\..\TestCases\test-data\ddf' specified by system property 'POI.testdata.path' does not exist.`

I debugged the unit tests, and this exception is thrown because the current directory when the POIDataSamples.Initialize() method is called is "C:\WIP\npoi\NPOI\TestCases\bin\Debug\TestResults\myusername_mymachinename 2010-08-27 07_45_38\Out".  The path needs an extra "..\..\" to work.

Do you guys have any thoughts on how I can avoid making this change to get my tests to run?


It looks like the path isn't my only problem.  The "test-data" directory is missing from the TestCases project.  I noticed that it does exist in the AllInOne solution, though.  Should I be building that one, rather than the NPOI solution?


The AllInOne solution builds after I add the missing Days360.cs file, but has no unit tests.
