Moving from Visual Studio 2005 beta 2 to RTM

We've finally reached a convenient point in the project where we can upgrade to the final version of .NET 2005 Visual Studio Team System. The only snag so far (unless you count recompiling everything and fixing the changed namespaces etc.) is with the localtestrun.testrunconfig files.

When opening the file, a message box informed me that

The Test Run Configuration file "<path>\localtestrun.testrunconfig" does not have the expected format:

Failed to instantiate type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.WebStress.WebTestRunConfig, Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTest, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a': Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.LoadTest' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

From here, I found out that the file needs to be opened as XML, any elements containing "WebTest", "WebStress" or "LoadTest" need to be deleted from the XML file (along with their children, grandchildren and pets).
