Running MSTest as 64 bit

Do you know the MsTest.exe is 32 bit by default. MS is yet to come up with 64 bit version of this exe, to run the tests in 64 bit mode.

Found the following steps in one of the useful post on Stackoverflow:

1.Backup mstest.exe and run CorFlags.exe MSTest.exe /32BIT- /Force to remove the 32-bit flag
2.Run your tests with /noisolation: MSTest.exe /testcontainer: /resultsfile: /noisolation

Tried validate the 3 step from post on my windows 7 machine but could not be validated so skipping that.

VSTS get a glimpse Series-1

Hi all. It’s been a good 2 years since TFS services online were made available by Microsoft. So much has changed since then in and around the world as well as in the TFS services online features.

So I thought to again visit the portal and get a glimpse of what all are now available? Writing this blog which is a 10 post series covering all the major features available as on 20 Jan 2016.

By the way 2 weeks back Microsoft renamed it from VSO to VSTS (Visual Studio Team Services). To me this new name make the right step. The On-premise version can continue to be called as TFS.

Time to Explore VSTS……………

As a first step i used a new login account and got the URL for my portal as:

As soon as you open this URL, following contents are presented to you in browser: On the left bottom is a link to create a new project, so click ‘New’.

Fill the details required to create a new project. This include Project name, Description, Template type and Version control (TFVC or GIT)

It may take a while for VSTS to create a project for you.


Once the project is created you land on the following page:

To start with we will explore the ‘Manage Work’ option first. Below is the screen I got after I clicked ‘Manage Work’ option.

In my next post of this series I will start exploring these links one by one starting with ‘New work item’ section ( at the bottom centre)

Stay tuned!
