    Are there any blogs or tutorials that describe using Fakes in more depth in VS 2012 Ultimate?

    I recently ran across this from Tech Ed.

    May want to jump to 39 minutes to get the good stuff.

    WTH? "Note: Fakes is available only in Utlimate edition." Don't you think you should change the title here, rather than rely on that little disclaimer?

    Title is VERY misleading since Fakes is only available in the Ultimate edition

    @GaryBushey: Thanks for the feedback - the Title has been updated to avoid the confusion.

    I don't understand that why code coverage is analyzing unit test assemblies,
    as you can see also in linked video.
    I think it make sense to check coverage for production code but not for
    the unit test assemblies,
    Please tell us if this is a bug in VS2013 or some other reason.

    I found about runsettings but switching from testsettings would
    ignore testsettings' deployment (where i can specify test data
    files and directories to deploy in addition to the target assemblies).
    ExcludeFromCodeCoverage attribute would be nice for new projects
    but what about projects migrating from VS2010

    There are fakes in VS 2013 Premium.

    Note that you need Update 2 or above and then to have Fakes in VS 2013 Premium.
