How to Publish .Coverage data to TFS...

I'm using Visual Studio 2010, and I'm running code coverage for manual testing.  I have the coverage file, and can see it in Visual Studio, but I'd like to figure out how to publish the results into TFS.

1) how do I publish it.  (I keep seeing references to this, but nobody says how, and I don't see it)

2) Where can I publish it in TFS?  to a Build, to a test plan/task?  etc...

Thanks.

I should include that this was generated by use of the command lines
vsinstr /coverage bob.exe      
vsperfcmd /start:coverage /output:"bob.coverage"
>>>  DO MANUAL TESTS HERE <<<
vsperfcmd /shutdown

Let me start by saying that I am not sure how either, but I am always curious by these types of questions, as they stimulate outside-the-box thinking...

"I keep seeing references to this"
It might make the searches faster to share some of those references.

I will assume that you are talking about Team Foundation Server 2010, unless otherwise indicated.

yes, Visual Studio 2010, TFS 2010.

- "I keep seeing references to this"
 - Here for instance: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/vststest/thread/b62a600c-be67-4112-8e1a-5f63bbf181b9#6c1ec90e-ca20-411a-80e2-7e2eb5bedd5f

Very interestink...

More clues:

http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/is/tfsbuild/thread/a160af74-b198-45be-a8a1-31555691e987

"The code coverage data is stored in the RunCoverage table in the TfsBuild database."

It seems to be related to the TFS Build process.

"Sometimes it can be useful to create “fake” builds in Team Foundation Server in order to successfully use other ALM features in the product."

so, does this mean I have to "fake" a build in TFS to tie code coverage to it?

I couldn't find any other way, but that doesn't mean that one doesn't exist.  It just means that it is difficult to find the right "magic".

Wasn't the solution I was hoping for, but it works, and enough time has passed that I presume there isn't a better solution.
