Some news for Visual Studio 2010, I'll start from several updates you should to apply on your TFS and Visual Studio.

KB - TFS 2010 SP1 Cumulative Update 1 – KB2536929

This is the first update from Microsoft since SP1, and the new concept from Microsoft is to release hot fixes for critical bugs. Every once in a while when the development team feels they have critical mass of fixes, they will publish a new update that includes all hot fixes. – So make sure your Visual Studio and TFS are up to date.

  • This update should be installed on TFS application tiers and build servers. It need not be installed elsewhere (clients or proxies).
  • *IMPORTANT UPDATE* - Don't install this patch on a TFS proxy!

KB - Rollup Update - Testing Tools in Visual Studio 2010 SP1 –  Read KB 

The above update solves several issues in Coded UI Testing:

  • Attempted to access an unloaded AppDomain. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131014)
  • "Search may have failed at '<name>' <control type> as it may have virtualized children. If the control being searched is descendant of '<name>' <control type>, then including it as the parent container may solve the problem."
  • And more - Read KB
