Visual Interdev 6 and Windows XP

Visual Interdev 6 and Windows XP

Visual Interdev 6 and Windows XP

I installed Visual Studio 6 on my desktop running Windows XP.  I use Visual Interdev to develop a web application (ASP).  I use a local IIS server as the web server.  I'm having problems using the debugger.  I get the following error when I try to debug:

"Unable to find project on server.  Unable to set server into correct debugging state automatically."

Can anybody help?


RE: Visual Interdev 6 and Windows XP

In the IIS Admin MMC SnapIn, right click the web app and choose properties.  Then click the "Configuration" button on the "Directory" tab on the property sheet.  This will bring up the "Application Configuration" property sheet dialog... go to the "Debugging" tab and make sure the flags are set.

In my opinion, the dubugging feature is not worth the effort because most bugs are easy enough to find with Response.Write

RE: Visual Interdev 6 and Windows XP

Thanks.  I made sure that both "Enable ASP Server-side script debugging" and "Enable ASP Client-side script debugging" are set.  Debugging starts now and I don't get the error msg I used to get.  

But, I have another problem!  Breakpoints don't stop.  The application does not stop on the breakpoints I set at all.  There is a ? mark next to the breakpoints when I'm debugging and when I click on it, it says "The breakpoint will not currently be hit.  The document is not loaded."  Can anyone tell me what I need to do to make debugging work?  Why is the breakpoint not working?
