Trying to remote debug ASP website from VS2010 Pro to Windows Server 2003 machine. Specifically, trying to debug a Web Service, but breakpoint says, "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document." This happens for all compiled code though. I have read this is due to missing PDB files and the work around is to manually copy them, as noted here. Problem is, I cannot find any PDB files for my project, except referenced libraries, which I can remote debug.
This is beyond frustrating. I migrated my code from VS2008 .Net3.5 to VS2010 .Net4.0 to take advantage of the inherent multithreading framework. Debugging works when using local host and was stable until deployment to test server.
Thanks in advance,
I'm new to HttpHandlers. I am writing an HttpHandler that reads uploaded files directly from the request stream to provide progress that can be queried using an AJAX request. For large files, this seems to be faster than having ASP.NET load the file contents into Request.Files and then streaming the file from there to wherever it goes (Linq to SQL into a VARBINARY column in an SQL Server database.)
My HttpHandler works perfectly when I'm debugging using the Visual Studio Development Server, but doesn't work otherwise. The application pool for this application in IIS 7 is set to run in Classic Mode, and the Handler Mappings screen in IIS says that I must manage managed handlers in system.web/httpHandlers.
I set up in my applications Web.config file.
<add verb="GET,POST" path="*.upload" type="Namespace.For.UploadHandler, AssemblyForUploadHandler"/>
It works great, so long as I don't debug with the "Use Local IIS Web server" option.
What else do I need to do to get this to work?
I'm finished with a part of my ASHX handler and need to test it against the software that'll be calling it using HTTP POST. The software required an https url so I created an internally hosted site in IIS and published the project there.
Question now is how do I do any debugging on the script to see what data is coming out of it before the data goes back into the software that's calling it? Do I set something on the project itself to be able to step into the published DLL?
Justin Marks shows how to use the IntelliTrace feature coming with Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate, which gives developers powerful new debugging tools to "turn up the dial" and collect the complete execution history of an application, get deeper levels of information and quickly find bugs.

In Visual C++ 10 and the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, Microsoft is introducing new libraries and runtimes to significantly ease the process of expressing parallelism in your code base, together with new tool support for performance analysis and debugging of parallel applications. In this article, you will learn about debugging support in Visual Studio 2010, much of which is focused on task-based programming models.
