  • Hi weiyi,

    Thank you for your post.

    According to your description of the issue, here are some situations i want to clarify from you:
    1. Did you use MTM to run Coded UI test, or use VS test agent to run CodedUI test?
    2. Did you want to know install TFS 2010 on Win 8 then run Coded UI test in Win 8 is supported or not?
    3. Did you want to know run Coded UI test in Win 8 is supported or not?
    4. What do you mean by "run this test cases in win8 OS and Metro Style application"?
    5. What's the version of your VS?

    As far as i know,
    1. Coded UI test could run in Win 8 OS, but may have some limitations. For detail information, you can refer to Supported Configurations and Platforms for Coded UI Tests and Action Recordings.
    2. Install TFS 2010 on Win 8 is not support now.
    3. Metro style appliaction is not supported in terms of VS 2010 Coded UI test.

    I hope this information will help resolve this issue.

    If anything is unclear, please free feel to let me know.

    Best regards,

  • Hi Lily:

    I indeed tend to use MTM 2010 to run codec UI test in Win8 OS.

    TFS agent 2010 and TFS controller 2010 are installed in my test machine .

    Should I run TFS Build service 2010 in Test ENV ?

    And Should I transfer my way into TFS2011 + VS2011.

    Best Regards

    Weiyi

    Transferring your way to TFS 11, VS 11 would be a good approach.
