    Hi folks,

    While most of the projects for which I am looking to automate testing are web-based, I have one .Net app by a company called Personify (which is also the name of their platform).  Having been in QA all my days and never a VS developer, I've managed to get VS 2010 (an evaluation copy) installed and the Telerik plugins added in.  I believe that was successful since I now see a Telerik menu between View and Debug in VS.

    So now I'm ready to start an automated test script against the Personify app, but how does one do this in VS?  I don't see a Record/Playback option.  If this has to be manually scripted from top to bottom, this obviously won't be a solution for me.

    Any guidance would be highly appreciated.

    Hello Mike,

    First I want to make sure Test Studio is going to be compatible with this .NET application of yours. We don't work with just any .NET application, it must be a pure WPF based .NET application. We can't work with WinForms based applications. One good way to tell whether or not your application is WPF is to use a tool like XamlSpy on it to see if that tool can dissect the UI. If that tool cannot, then Test Studio won't be able to either.

    Once you confirm you .NET application is WPF based, then just follow our instructions for creating and recording a WPF test in Visual Studio. Let me know if you need further assistance.
