Testing Windows Forms (or, code road from dev to test)

I wish MS would show us how are they utilizing VPC in creating all these test environments.  I  heard that the whole thing is fully automated, all you have to do is specify the image spec (OS, Tools, …) you need and it is created and made available to you.  That’s something that many of us can make use of.

Currently, we have created many VPC images for the common environments we have to test with. and we’re slowly moving towards Virtual Server.  However, it is a hassle to keep these images up to date and clean.   This would be a great MSDN Universal add-on to make available tools and environments available as VPC images in addition to the ISO files.
