Visual Studio: Fiddler and Team Test web test

Noticed that the amazing Fiddler has the capacity to generate Team Test web tests for you.

See here.

Aside: Note the comment further down the page:

"Please see for information on how to troubleshoot problems with WebTests".

Very useful link!


Visual Studio

I've been playing around with Team Test 2008 running on Windows 7.

When I try and capture a web test, the browser would lock up with the comment:

"The web test recorder must be launched from within Visual Studio".

WTF, I am within Visual Studio!

Mr. Google to the rescue and the solution is that you have to run VS with administrator rights.

Right-click on the shortcut / Properties / Compatibility / Check "Run this program as an administrator".

Problem solved.
