Web Performance Tests – VS 2010 Crashing – Webtest Results Viewer

I’ve been doing a bit of work on Automated testing at work lately. As part of this I have been writing some custom web test plugins for creating data on the fly. Some pretty cool stuff can be done with these things.

Only issue is that I was getting some really annoying crashes. I couldn’t figure out what it was since it would crash VS with no errors. Turns out there is a bug in the webtest results viewer integrated into devenv.exe, this can crash when the very useful and seemingly innocent WebTest instance method AddCommentToResult() is used.

On the positive side it appears that this is fixed in VS 2010 SP1 – Link below

More to come on Automated testing soon…..
