    I trying to execute the scripts form MTM2010 and I have testlab setup for execution.
    When I execute the scripts, I am getting the below error. When I run the scripts from VSTS2010 it works fine.

    System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'HCS.TMS.QA.Automation.PositionManager.Common.Settings.GlobalSettings' threw an exception. ---> System.InvalidCastException: Unable to cast object of type 'HCS.TMS.QA.Automation.PerformanceManager.Common.Settings.ConfigSection.AutomationConfigSection' to type 'HCS.TMS.QA.Automation.PositionManager.Common.Settings.ConfigSection.AutomationConfigSection'.

    Please help he in resolving the issue.

    Thanks & regards,

    The error message doesn't look like it has anything to do with Test Studio. The problem is happening in the DLL for HCS.TMS.QA.Automation.PositionManager.Common.Settings.GlobalSettings which is not Test Studio code at all. My guess (and it's only a shot in the dark) is that there's a DLL version mismatch installed on your execution machine for one of your own DLL's.
