Microsoft Test Manager (MTM) has test runner using which one can do manual testing. One of the features that many folks use while doing manual testing using test runner is the Fast Forward feature. With this feature, a tester can do an action recording and later use that to fast forward the test with playback of the recording.

A while back, this question came up in our internal forum on the above feature -

Q: My customer has a lot of existing manual tests with action recordings and there are some changes in the UI Map that they want to update for all the existing action recordings to avoid having to re-record them.  How can they do it?

R: In response to above, Jelle Druyts came up with the attached sample code that can do this.  Check it out – the code is self explanatory and you can update it to suit your needs.
