Upgrading TestArchitect BuildAssemblies’ files in multiple projects

Steps to upgrade build assembly files of multiple TA-MTM projects.

  • Upgrading of outdated build assembly files is supported with TA-MTM plug-in versions #3.0.14 or later. (To check the current version of your TA-MTM plug-in: in Visual Studio, select the Tools > Extensions and Updates menu, browse, and then click TA-MTM Integration Plugin).
  • If your TA-MTM plug-in version is #3.0.19 or earlier, an additional step is required after upgrading the build assembly files. TA-MTM integration projects created after #3.0.19 have replaced Coded UI with Unit Tests; that is, they are no longer dependent on the Coded UI libraries. Therefore, you must reassociate your existing TFS tests cases (Learn more).

To upgrade the build assembly files of multiple TA-MTM projects simultaneously, do the following:

  1. Start Visual Studio.
  2. In the Solution Explorer tree, select multiple solution nodes and then right-click the selection.
  3. Select Update TestArchitect BuildAssemblies file(s)… If outdated build assembly files of the selected solutions are detected, the TestArchitect BuildAssemblies Version Update dialog box appears:

    Note: The current version of the TA-MTM Integration plug-in is displayed at the bottom of the dialog box.
  4. Select the project to be upgraded and then click Update.
  5. Click OK to begin the upgrade process. A notification message appears informing you that the upgrade was successful.
