Visual Studio Performance Testing Tip #4: Plugin is not executing

In the previous post, I showed how to create a plugin for Visual Studio Performance Test to suppress dependent requests that contained certain text. In few occasion the plugin wasn’t being executed by Visual Studio. I tried many things include, GACing the assemblies, Copy to local drive, reboot and other solutions that are posted on the internet. But nothing fixed the issue.

I found out that removing the requests that invoke favicon.ico fixed the issue. I don’t know reason. It seems to be a bug
