You can enable tracing for the following components using the respective config files

  • mtlm.exe.config – For MTLM features
  • CodedUITestBuilder.exe.config – For coded UI test builder
  • QTAgent32.exe.config – For coded UI test

The config files are located at “%ProgramFiles%\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE”

Update EqtTraceLevel or UITestTraceLevel in corresponding files as

    • 1 - indicates Errors only
    • 2 - indicates Errors and Warnings
    • 3 - indicates Errors, Warnings and Information
    • 4 - indicates All including Verbose Information

EqtTraceLevel is for all testing tools modules of the executable
