For Windows 8 Metro style applications the Visual Studio 11 Test Tools ( Visual Studio 11 Beta Microsoft Test Manager and the Microsoft Feedback Client) are expected to be connected via a remote session using Remote Desktop Connection (MSTSC.exe) or using the simulator integrated into Visual Studio 11 Beta.   To the right is an image of starting a Windows 8 Metro application in the Visual Studio 11 Beta Simulator.  Below is a screen shot of the Visual Studio 11 Beta Feedback client with two screen shots of two different Windows 8 Metro style applications – one being run in the simulator and the other on a remote machine accessed through Remote Desktop Connection (MSTSC.exe). clip_image001
