Ensure that you have already taken the following steps:
To run automated tests in MTM, do the following:

    • Visual Studio 2013.
  2. In MTM Testing Center, switch to the Test tabbed page.
  3. On the Run Tests page, select a test suite or an individual test you want to run.

  4. Select Run from the Run menu.

    Tip: If you wish to run a test in a different environment or with different test settings, choose Run with options.
    The Analyze Test Runs tab is displayed, showing the progress of the test run that contains this test.
After test completion, press the Refresh button to see the tests results. The result details include data collected for the test results and the test results history.

Once you are able to run automated tests on Microsoft Test Manager successfully, it's time to move on to integration with TestArchitect.
