Some news for Visual Studio 2010, I’ll start from several updates you should to apply on you TFS and Visual Studio.
This is the first Update from Microsoft since SP1, and the new concept from Microsoft is to release hot fixes for critical bugs, every once in a while when the development team feels they have critical mass of fixes they will publish new Update includes all hot fixes. – So make sure your Visual Studio and TFS are up to date.
- This update should be installed on TFS application tiers and build servers. It need not be installed elsewhere (clients or proxies).
- *IMPORTANT UPDATE* – Don’t install this patch on a TFS proxy!
The above update solves several issues in Coded UI Testing:
- Attempted to access an unloaded AppDomain. (Exception from HRESULT: 0×80131014)
- “Search may have failed at ‘<name>‘ <control type> as it may have virtualized children. If the control being searched is descendant of ‘<name>‘ <control type> then including it as the parent container may solve the problem.”
