Enabling JavaScript in Visual studio browser opened for Web Performance testing

We are doing web performance testing for a cloud based application with AAD authentication.
After recording When we try to replay it visual studio browser displays an error like "Java Script is disabled".
How can we edit the Visual Studio's Browsers setting or for Web performance testing is it possible to open the IE instead of Visual Studio browser.
Thanks in advance.


  • Visual Studio web tests do not use a browser. Visual Studio includes a very simple browser that gives an idea of the web pages etc that are retrieved. The web tests are intended to simulate the load that a browser creates, to put load onto the web server. By design Visual Studio web test facilities do not try and run JavaScript or other scripts, nor do they process .css files. They do download all such files requested by the web page.
