    I have a problem trying to select a folder as a deployment item.
    My goal is to copy the folder to the directory where the test is ran.
    What happens instead though is that it copies the files inside the folder to the directory where the test is ran.

    I might ust be missing something simple, but I'm really not getting any further with this.

    Any help would be greatly apriciated

    Hi Tim,

    The deployment items list is a Visual Studio feature, not a Test Studio feature. Thus it's under total control of Microsoft. Also I'm afraid that's just the way it works in Visual Studio. It will always flatten any folder structures during the initialization phase of test execution as it creates the Out folder with the artifacts to test.

    To do it differently you'll need to write your own coded step to create/copy the files into the folder structure you desire for your test run.
