The Feature Is Back- Visual Studio 2013 Can Run Selected Tests in Test List Editor

On August 29, 2013, I wrote a post mentioning VSTS 2012 IDE update 3 doesn’t really support Coded Web Performance Tests at a time.

After I installed Visual Studio 2013 RTM, I upgraded my Visual Studio 2010 Test Project including VSMDI file. I would like to see if Visual Studio 2013 fixes the issue above.

From the screenshot, I could see Test List Editor is deprecated. This is expected because it has been deprecated since Visual Studio 2012.




Can I run Selected Tests in one of my Test Lists? The answer is yes.

Here are the simple steps:

Select Pending Test lists -> 7 tests are selected.

Go to TEST- Run -> Selected Tests



This feature can only build the solution file because I see “Build succeeds”.

Go to LOAD TEST-> Run -> Selected Tests



It will automatically run 7 tests at a time. This is really what I want.


I am very happy to say that this feature is finally back and it fixes the bad design issue I mention above.

my vsmdi is missing all the test lists I have created in VS 2010. How do I get them back? The xml file has them but they don't show up in the test list editor view.

You can import it in your VSTS 2013.
