I was able to run codedUI Cross Browser tests before applying update 2 CTP, after applying update 2 CTP I get the error below.

Note I can run tests just fine with update 1, and the selenium libraries didn't change and are still referenced in my project:

Microsoft.VisualStudio.TestTools.UITest.Extension.UITestException: The playback engine could not find the Selenium binaries required to run cross browser coded UI tests. This may be because the Selenium .NET bindings and Selenium Chrome driver are not installed or an older version of the Selenium Components Installer was used. For more information about installing the binaries, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=267598

Hi Marc Velasco,
Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft. For VS 2012 Update 2, you need to install the latest Selenium installer from VS gallery.
Please reactivate the issue if you have installed the latest bits and if the issue persists still.
