  • Hi Rajesh,

    I suggest you use the VS2012 if you want to create coded UI test, since it has more new features.

    For example, the new UI code testing APIs have been added in Visual Studio 2012, it will support more technologies.

    Reference:

    What's New for Application Lifecycle Management Testing in Visual Studio 2012

    In addition, we could get the test result(.trx file) in the Test Results window in VS2010 when we run the coded UI test in VS IDE, this feature has been removed in VS2012, but you could run it in command line. In addition, The Test View window also has been removed in VS2012, but you would run the coded UI test in the Test Explorer window.
