Visual Studio 2008 Team Test Issues
Wednesday, May 21, 2008 12:15 PM

I have had ongoing problems getting various tests to work using my installation of VS2008 Team Suite. Initially, I had a problem running unit tests (see here), then sometime after that, I had other niggling issues with code coverage and had to copy assemblies from Private folders to public folders and vice versa.

Recently, I tried recording some web tests so I can perform loading testing on a particular web application. As luck would have it, it was failing with the cryptic message shown in below:

Method ‘CreateDataSourceWizard’ in type ‘Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.LoadTest.WebTestEditorPane’ from assembly ‘Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTestPackage, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a’ does not have an implementation.

Google gave me no juice on this and frustration was setting in.

I tried the following:

  • Lots of time checking versions of files and reflecting back over the assemblies mentioned in the error message.
  • Un-installed and re-installed the Team Test components.
  • Un-installed and re-installed Visual Studio 2008

Nothing worked. Oddly, when I un-installed the Team Test components, I still had 'Test' options functioning in my VS2008 menu.

So I finally resolved this issue, and the solution was this:

  1. Un-install Visual Studio 2008
  2. Go to the directory where it was previously installed and manually remove the copious amounts of files and directories that were left over.
  3. Perform a registry clean using this Registry Cleaner for Vista.
  4. Re-installed Visual Studio 2008

And now it works. Finally.
