Microsoft Test Manager 2015 hangs if the build is specified and the Verify Bugs option is selected

  2. Assign the build to a test plan.
  3. Execute a manual test case in Microsoft Test Runner.
  4. During execution, create a bug.
  5. End the Microsoft Test Runner session.
  6. Click the Verify Bugs tab.
  7. Select the bug that you created in step 4, and then click Verify Bugs.


To resolve this problem, install the Microsoft Test Manager 2015 update.
