My current favourite Visual Studio theme is Brad Wilson’s Dark Visual Studio. It is not too gaudy, uses a nice font (Consolas) and is easy on the eye.
For pre-Vista/Win 7 PCs you need to install the Consolas Font Pack for Visual Studio from Microsoft.


Other Visual Studio themes can be downloaded (or designed) from the excellent website.

Open up the LocalTestRun.testrunconfig file for the project and add <ExecutionThread apartmentState=”1” /> after the <Description> tag:


Re-opening the solution and running the test again will now work without the exception.
