Am I correct in understanding that the only way to run tests created by the testing framework is with MbUnit, NUnit, VS Team Test, or XUnit? It would be more beneficial for me to be able to run a test using a windows forms. 

Thanks. 

Adam.

Hmmmm, I am having trouble navigating to a URL with a button click, could you navigate to a tutorial or reference documentation?

I solved the issue..it appears that not running VS as an adminstrator was causing the issue I was running into.

Well I don't know how much I can help, but if you're going to be using windows forms with the testing framework, you should be doing your tests on a separate thread from your UI thread.

maybe give this a read --> http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms951089.aspx

The way I have my code set up, my form opens and the user chooses which tests are to be run, and then they just do their own thing on the separate thread. If you're attempting to control each action of the browser automation from the winform I'm not sure if I can help.

UITestInterface = new Thread(() => TestRunner.runTests(myArgs));
UITestInterface.Start();

Once my test begins it runs just like you were running the testing framework from a console app...

Oh yeah I had that same issue myself!

well you can ignore my post mostly, but take a look into the multithreaded stuff if you're gonna be using winforms.
