  1. (sent you an email with similar content) - I've noted a few things:

    1) the tutorial says to "add a web project" when it SEEMS to mean "add a web test"
    2) My own brand-new install of 2005 Team Edition For Software Testers doesn't enable the Record/Pause/Stop/ etc buttons in the browser; in fact, it LOOKS like the PAUSE button is pressed and disabled; there's a message that says that the Web Test Recorder must be launched from within Visual Studio. (this happens after I start a recording by creating a new web test, OR by hitting the round, red RECORD button on the Web Test tab)
    3) When I'm done recording (I stop using the STOP RECORDING link on the Web Test tab) nothing is generated; no URLs show up on the page; there's an empty te4st.
