Hotfix for Expected Results not displaying in Microsoft Test Manager

I'm happy to announce that Microsoft has publicly released a hotfix for the expected results not displaying in Microsoft Test Manager.  I previously blogged about Workaround for Problem with Visual Studio 2010 SP1 TFS Compatibility GDR for Microsoft Test Manager, but a fix is much better.

  1. Prerequisite #1 is "Visual Studio 2010 SP1" version KB983509 which can be downloaded/installed from here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=75568aa6-8107-475d-948a-ef22627e57a5  
  2. Prerequisite #2 is "Visual Studio 2010 SP1 TFS Compatibility GDR"  version KB2581206 which can be downloaded/installed from here http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=212065&clcid=0x409  
  3. Go to  http://support.microsoft.com/hotfix/KBHotfix.aspx?kbnum=2656136&kbln=en-us  for this hotfix version KB2656136
  4. Click on "Show hotfixes for all platforms and languages" and the hotfix checkbox will appear
  5. Select the hotfix checkbox as shown below
  6. Fill out the information to Request hotfix by email
  7. Click on Request hotfix button
  8. You will receive an email. Scroll down all the way to the bottom and you will see the download link for the hotfix.
  9. There is a zipped file "443183_intl_i386_zip.exe" which will extract the executable
  10. Run the "VS10SP1-KB2656136-x86.exe" and follow the instructions on the installer
  11. You will be asked to restart your computer in order for the installation to be complete
Hope that helps,
