    @Diwan, CUITe has been tested to support WPF desktop applications and silverlight web application, among other frameworks.  Let's continue the discussion topic here:…/405648

    I receive the following error when running CUITe 1.6 for .NET v4.5 with MSVS 2012 Up2.

    Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.Silverlight, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=374b4c93160c098c' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    Two questions: Do you support MSVS 2012? And, do I have to have Silverlight to test HTML pages?

  6. Arek says:

    Just add a reference to the mentionned assembly and it will work

  7. Sankar Muthaiah says:

    @Will I had the same challenge and my machine does not have that .silverlight assembly.  And it got resolved after installing Microsoft Visual Studio UI Test Plugin for Silverlight. You do not have to add reference to it.

  9. Rajesh S says:

    Hi All, I started working in CUITe a while ago. I've done everything right., but still i don't see the test method in the test explorer. is  there any way to resolve it. NOTE: if i do not inherit the page from the "CUITe_BrowserWindow", i can see the testmethod.. but anyhow the test fails.. 🙁
