What is a GENERICTEST file?
A GENERICTEST file contains a generic test used by Visual Studio, a software development tool for Windows programs and web applications. It stores a program, test, or third-party tool in a format that allows it to be tested by the Team System testing tools included with Visual Studio.
GENERICTEST files are used by developers to wrap external programs and tests that were not developed to be used in the Team System testing tools. You can manage and run generic tests and gather results with these testing tools.
To create a GENERICTEST, right-click a test project in Solution Explorer, select Add, and click Generic Test.
Visual Studio uses different file extensions for a variety of file types. Some of the different test file extensions include GENERICTEST, WEBTEST, and .LOADTEST.
