Introduction

An update rollup that is available resolves the following issues that occur when you use the testing tools in Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 (SP1).

Issue 1
Consider the following scenario:
  • You use Microsoft Test Runner in Microsoft Test Manager to run a manual test.
  • You create a bug or run a test.
In this scenario, Test Runner may crash, and then you may receive the following error message:
Test Runner is waiting for the application under test


Issue 2
Consider the following scenario:
  • You run some unit tests on a test agent in Test Manager.
  • You edit the Local.testsettings file for the unit tests.
  • You use a custom batch file in a startup script.
  • The batch file starts a web service before a unit test is performed.
In this scenario, the unit test does not start as expected after the web services runs.
Issue 3
In some cases, Test Manager crashes, a System.StackOverflowException exception occurs, and a Clr20r3 Dr. Watson error is generated. The Blamed Symbol field of the Dr. Watson error contains a value resembling the following:
MICROSOFT.VISUALSTUDIO.QUALITYTOOLS.COMMON.DLL!Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.Common.EqtStringPerThreadWriter.GetStringWriterForThread.
