I have the same problem... please fix! If not going to fix, please at least give a warning during VS installation and give the option to put Visual Studio folders in a different location when the My Documents folder is using folder redirection.

Me too. Do you have a solution for this?

I am facing this same problem. Unit tests are not running on the network drive.

1. Open C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE
2. add <loadFromRemoteSources enabled="true" /> within <runtime>...</runtime>
3. Save it.
4. Map your network path to a drive
5. Open VS solution and it worked for me.

(you might not have to bother with step 1-3, so just try step 4-5 first. If not, then do step 1-3 as well)
