    I have a project setup question...

    So we have our main web solution in VisualStudio 2015, hooked up to GitHub.  Now I am the only dev with TestStudio access so I would like all the TS files to live inside the same github repo, but not cause issues.

    I see there's a VS project type, and that sounds nice, but if I add that will it break the build for the non-TS users, and can I just use the real TS UI desktop app INSTEAD of VS?  Or do you just put the TS project into the root folder and let git sync the file changes and keep everything out of VS entirely?

    Any info\suggestions people have would seriously help me out here :)

    I am running a test where a created a new VS solution with 2 projects

    - WebApp
    - TS Project

    So I can open the WebTest1.tstest in visual studio and I can also open it in the TS Desktop app (Nice).
    The "Tests" also showup in my VS Test Explorer (double nice)

    However if I add test steps or anything in the desktop app, they aren't reflected in the VS extension... unless I close and re-open Visual Studio....which I guess is fine.

    So how would I go about adding this to the project such that General Developer 1 could still build the solution.  Is it as simple as pulling all the DLL refs into a local Assemblies folder and fixing the references?... or would the fact that their VS instance not knowing what a .tstest file is cause compile problems.

    Hi Steve,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    We do not recommend to edit a test project from several places at a time (e.g. from Test Studio and Visual Studio).

    If this is really necessary you can connect Test Studio to TFS (the only source control which Test Studio has build in connection), edit the project and check it in.

    After that the developer can perform GetLatest for the project and build it with the latest modification.

    Hope that helps.
