    There is a feature in VS called web test (in the VS2010 its called web performance test), what this feature does is actually record your HTTP/HTTPS sends and receives and then runs them against your IIS (or other web server), since this test is not sensitive to UI changes its great as a base to MS load tests.
    My question is: there most be a way to run my .aii test against the recorder instead of manually record them again (I even think I saw it on one of the previous versions video I just cannot find it)?

    Hello Omri Kohl,

    We recently reviewed the Convert to Visual Studio WebTest feature.

    In our review, we noticed a pattern that caused us some concern. Many users were attempting to convert their functional tests to stress tests. The reality is that stress scenarios need to be carefully thought through right from the start and recorded just for that purpose. Although cross-leverage is possible, most real world functional tests do not make good stress tests.

    After careful consideration we decided it would be better to remove it from the product as it was promoting bad testing practices.
