I suggest you ...

Provide Microsoft Fakes with all Visual Studio editions

Include Microsoft Fakes with all editions of Visual Studio including Professional edition rather than being restricted to developers with Ultimate editions of Visual Studio. This will allow all Visual Studio developers to leverage the capabilities of the Fakes mocking library since mocking/stubbing is a necessary part of every developer's Unit Testing toolbelt.

        I just don't get it. We develop in .net so big companies buys windows OS, in a way we promote microsoft's envirionment, but by the other hand Ms only makes developers to go away and try AND recommend other kind of technology.
        Keep in mind that the most power of developers is out of USA, and we can't afford that very huge ammount of money for a good license.
        The question here is: Do you still want us to recommend .net technologies or keep making us going away to another technologies?

        That is not enough. Many people (including Students) only have access to express and professional editions. This kind of policies is what keeps Microsoft away from University environments. Till Microsoft change this policies I will have my students working with Java and Ruby. :-(

        This is a Migration Blocking Condition for us as well. Fakes is replacing Moles but then blocks access due to license level. Definitely not the right approach here!

        Sorry guys this simply is not enough. To have a UT mocking framework dependent on the license of an end user seems rather ludicrous to me. You're just forcing your entry market shops to move away from MS stuff little by little. I'm sorely disappointed that the contractors we work with (on Pro only) are now not able to run our UT suites and we will have to move away from Fakes.

        I second that. Have Fakes in professional VS as well, that's what this vote was for in the first place!

        Yup, released only ultimate version seems stupid, nowadays lots of the IDE are free, MS should open the mind.

        I agree. Not providing it with ALL VS editions is stupid. Also, why has it taken until the 2012 edition to do this?!?! It should be available to the 2010 edition as well.

        Why do you people insist on making the same mistakes over and over again ?

        Make it available if you want people to use it!

        MS (marketing dept perhaps?) made the same type of mistake a while back, by selling Blend separately from VStudio - look at the negative effect that had.

        So please get real - it is needed in Professional, now.

        Thank you so much for not letting me use fakes just becuase I have a professional edition of VS2012 installed with all my custom settings . Stubs seems to have a way but shims , how on earth can I test it...feelign annoyed.

        VS 2012 Professional doesnot support Fakes. Will it also get an update ?
