    What is the perfered way of sharing test projects between QA and Dev editions? We dont use TFS.
    Does the QA edition just open the same folder that contains the Dev solution/project file?

    Whilst trialing both editions I tried to also add standard C# unit tests in the project (via Dev edition). These required additional assembly references. Everything works fine in Dev edition but when I try to use the QA edition, the project files to compile the coded steps. Is including these extra tests not supported in the same project?

    I'm basically trying to see how I can get both Dev and QA teams running each others tests. Maybe there is another way?

    Hi Ryan,

    Generally it is better to not mix different test types (such as C# coded unit tests) into the same project as those containing .aii tests that you want to share between both editions of Test Studio. But it is not impossible either. Note that the list of referenced dll's (along with most project settings) is kept separate between the Dev Edition and the QA Edition. We use the Visual Studio method for storing project settings in the Dev Edition and use our own method for the QA Edition. Test Lists will not carry over between the two editions.

    To make your project compile in the QA edition that contains C# coded unit tests, you simply need to add a reference to the required dll for the QA Edition project settings:

    C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\PublicAssemblies\Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll

    See the attached screen shot. It shows adding the Telerik dll's which doesn't apply in your case. But the same method is used to add any other dll references needed. Click on Show Settings from the Project Tab to get to this Settings dialog.

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
