When WP7.1 project set a startup in solution.
If you set target emulator to any WP7 emulator using "Debug target" dropdown button on "Standard" toolbar and try to run Windows Phone Unit Tests using Test Explorer, Visual Studio will try to run Windows Phone Unit Tests on emulator selected in "Debug target" dropdown button.
While in Windows Phone Unit Test App project properties target emulator set to WP8 emulator.

Thanks Andrii for your feedback.

Since you are able to run tests on windows 8 emulator and are not really blocked because of this, we have decided to live with this behavior for now. If we hear that more customers are running into the problem, we will revisit this.
