    I am receiving this error when trying to run tests on the VM.

    Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=10.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    Thank you in advance,
    - Jessica

    Hi Jessica,

    Please install Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010 to overcome this problem.

    The forum was not showing up this morning as I stated in the new support question I sent you. I also stated that I had installed Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010 so this is not the issue.

    Hi Jessica,

    The DLL "Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client, Version=10.0.0.0" is a Microsoft DLL (of course) and I am 100% certain it is included in the Microsoft Visual Studio Team Explorer 2010 download. Please note that the error message also states "or one of its dependencies". So while you did install the prerequisite Team Explorer you may be missing some other dependent DLL.

    To troubleshoot this I'd like you to download and run the Assembly Binding Log Viewer. This will log all .NET assembly binding attempts and should provide us with where it's going wrong when trying to load Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Client.
