VS 2005 Test logs

Visual Studio 2008 is an absolutely incredible product.  But there are a few gotchas here and there and one just knocked me in the head.  Not a big deal, but upon first glance, if you’re in a hurry, you might just get ticked at VS08.  If you use VS08 to open a test log (TRX) file that was created in VS05, all VS08 will show you is that the test failed.  For some reason, it doesn’t display the error details that are contained in the file.  Opening in VS05 works just fine of course. 
Just another tidbit for those watching.
Happy Coding
