Migrating from VS 2010 Express to VS 2015 Professional --- debugging issues

Migrating from VS 2010 Express to VS 2015 Professional --- debugging issues

Migrating from VS 2010 Express to VS 2015 Professional --- debugging issues

(OP)
Boy, this is a strange one. I developed a few windows apps several years ago using VS 2010 Express (for vb.net). I just procured VS 2015 Professional and am in the process of moving all of my old projects to this platform. I have come up with a very strange, and potentially deal breaking problem, with the very first app I upgraded.

When I start the app in debug mode and click on a line of code to enable the breakpoint, it shows up as a red circle. I went to Debug | Windows | Modules and at the point where my application is the column "Optimized" says Yes (<--- I don't know why...) and "Symbol Status" is not loaded. I right-clicked on the item and clicked "Load Symbols" and they loaded. I am able to run and stop at the breakpoint, but hitting the F10 key just resumes the program as if I had hit F5.

I think the problem might stem from the optimized code, but I never did anything to force that as far as I know. Anyone know where to point me?

Thanks in advance...
Jerry

Are you running the release or debug version? Don't check properties because you can be running the Debug version and properties will show you the Release version and vice-versa. I just hate this new "feature" of VS. You need to switch on the toolbar.

You should have tried the Community edition first.
