Description Jon Goldberger [MSFT] 2015-08-25 21:14:06 UTC
## Description:

Despite what it says here:
and here:

that if you are using XVS version 3.11 (I am on 3.11.837) or greater new Xamarin projects will include a UOITest project by default. This does not seem to be true at least in my environment.

## steps to reproduce

1. Open Visual Studio and create a new Xamarin solution. (I have tested Android Blank, iOS Single View, and Forms Portable)

Expected result: Solution will include a UITest Project. 

actual result: Solution does not include a UITest Project. 

## Notes

Test using VS 20134 and VS 2015 for new Andorra Blank, iOS SingleView and Forms Portable new projects.

Comment 1 Daniel Cazzulino 2016-05-19 15:14:24 UTC
Sin you can't (yet) run UI tests against iOS from Visual Studio, we aren't adding them by default. We will when we can.

Moving to C9 milestone when we have UITests for iOS running inside VS.
Comment 2 Joaquin Jares 2017-06-28 17:24:00 UTC
We should be able to add this to the overview pages. We're focusing on quality right now, though, but we'll check it out as soon as we're back to features.
Comment 3 Prashant [MSFT] 2017-07-24 11:33:06 UTC
I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 Preview version 15.3, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a reproduction, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
