I've had a quick read around this subject and it looks like Action Recordings can be made in Internet Explorer 9 and then played back with fast forward. However my question is about recordings made in earlier versions of Internet Explorer.

Before I upgrade to IE9 can anyone confirm for me that my Action Recordings that I made in IE8 with Test Manager will indeed work in IE9 (without having to re-record and adjust anything significantly).

Take a look at this link from MSDN. It may answer your question in part.

In the platform support section:

Windows Internet Explorer 9

Important Windows Internet Explorer 9 is only supported if you have installed Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1 The following scenarios are supported if you have installed Visual Studio 2010 Service Pack 1:

You can create an action recording or coded UI test with Internet Explorer 7 or Internet Explorer 8 and play this back using Internet Explorer 9.

You can create an action recording using Internet Explorer 9 running in compatibility mode and play this back with Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9.

You can create a coded UI test from an action recording or by recording actions using Internet Explorer 9 running in compatibility mode. You can run this test with Internet Explorer 7, Internet Explorer 8 or Internet Explorer 9.

Important You cannot create an action recording using the standard mode for Internet Explorer 9 because the new features and controls for Internet Explorer 9 are not currently supported.
