I have seen a lot of customers who use TCM.exe to execute tests on remote environments, but I have not seen many who use the same command-line to execute the tests locally. Here by locally, I mean tests running on the developer’s/tester’s box, which does not have any test controller or test agent and has only MTM. Yes, it’s possible to do this in 2012 version. :)
Now Let us go over the steps which you should follow to execute the tests locally.
tcm run /create /title:"Nightly Run" /planid:1 /suiteid:5 /configid:13 /settingsname:"<Name of your automated test settings>" /collection:<CollectionURL> /teamproject:<Team Project name>
Run created with ID: <xxx>
tcm run /execute /id:id /collection:<CollectionURL> /teamproject:<Team project name>
On completion, you will get the results as shown below.
Super useful; thanks!
