**Steps to Reproduce:**

   Update to 4.2
   Create an Android project and set it as the startup project.
   Create a UITest project. 
   Right-click on the UITest project

**Actual Results:**

   There is no Run in Test Cloud option.
**Expected Results:**

   Should see a Run in Test Cloud option in the right-click context menu.

Comment 1 Jose Gallardo 2016-09-21 19:58:26 UTC
There was a performance improvement targeting Dev15 which makes the XTC extension to be out of our vsix and instead to be published separately on the VS Gallery (which is not ready).
Unfortunately, that change was included in our cycle8 branch, and is causing this issue.

We're working on reverting this change, potentially on SR0.
