Breakpoints not Hit - XP-Pro

Breakpoints not Hit - XP-Pro

Breakpoints not Hit - XP-Pro

I am running XP-pro, VI 6.0 sp5 IE 6.0.

I have read all the related documents and I am set up (I think) as I should be.

I launch the web application and my breakpoint indicator gets a question mark and a tool tip saying "The Breakpoint will not currently be hit. The document is not loaded"

The Microsoft article talks about a hot fix to asp.dll, but I am assuming that went away with NT 4.0.

Thanks for any advice,

RE: Breakpoints not Hit - XP-Pro

Most likely the [DLLName].pdb file is not getting generated when you build project in Debug mode.  Compare the timestamp on [DLLName].pdb file and [DLLName].dll after you rebuild in Debug mode.  If they are different try the following to resolve the problem:

1. Go to you project Properties and check Configuration Properties -> Build -> Outputs -> Generate Debugging Information setting.  It should be set to True.  

2. Try to compile in Debug mode with this setting set to True.

3. Run the project.

Good luck!

RE: Breakpoints not Hit - XP-Pro

I ran into the same symptom when I had to revisit InterDev on a new machine.  I found the problem to be that I had failed to install the "Visual InterDev Server" when I installed InterDev.  Once I installed the "Server", the debugger worked fine.  

Check out the link below and the text taken from content at the link.  The text instructs you where to find the "Visual InterDev Server" setup program.  

Also note, the first time that I tried the debugger, it did not work.  Subsequently though I hit breakpoints as expected.

Hope that solves you issue as well.


Note:   Visual InterDev Server is another component of the BackOffice Server Wizard. It is required for debugging. The stand-alone setup for this is located in the Vid_ss directory on CD1 of Visual InterDev Professional Edition, or CD2 of Visual Studio Professional or Enterprise Edition.
