I have a simple test case developed by codedui.

Open run by windows +r Add "iexplorer" Hit enter Navigate to my web page Do an assertion.

I can run this on my local PC.But is there any way to set up this as a build pipeline at visualstuido.com ?

Actually i did that.But im getting an error at the "Test Assemblies" stage.

Below is the error message.

Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.UITestControlNotFoundException: Unable to find the top level element of the control ---> Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.UITestControlNotFoundException: Unable to find Windows Internet
