  • Hi Ganesan,

    As far as I know, visual studio community 2013 shares the same features with Visual Studio Professional. You could refer the link below for this.

    # Q & A on Visual Studio Community 2013 and 2015 Preview

    The requirements of the Coded UI Tests and Action Recordings are Visual Studio Ultimate, Visual Studio Premium. Visual Studio Professional is not supported for the Coded UI Tests. You could refer the link below:

    # Supported Configurations and Platforms for Coded UI Tests and Action Recordings

    So, I am afraid that the Coded UI tests is not supported in the visual studio community 2013. I have tried to find an office document to prove it, but I failed. I tried to install the visual studio community 2013, and I could not find the Coded UI tests in the template, there is only Unit test in the template.

    Hope it will help.

    Best Regards,
