  • Hi,

    Thank you for posting in the MSDN forum.

    Based on your post, I feel you did not get the issue when you work with Visual Studio tests. In this case, I’m afraid that it is not the correct forum for this issue, since this forum is to discuss the VS testing issue.

    If you get issues when working with ASP.NET Web Application/Web Service, I suggest that you can consult your issue on ASP.NET forum: http://forums.asp.net/  for better solution and support.

    If I have misunderstood anything, please feel free to let me know.

    Best regards,
