Can no longer debug

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework

I am using Visual Studio 2010 to write an add in that works with AutoCAD 2011.

My workstation OS is Windows 7 ultimate 64bit

I am running 64bit AutoCAD 2011

I am using Visual Studio 2010 proffesional.

Running my application in debug mode automatically runs AutoCAD. Until yesterday I was able to set breakpoints and step through my code. Now when i set a breakpoint invoking a custom command in AutoCAD produces a "NO SOURCE AVAILABLE" page. Nothing happens until I hit (F5) to continue. My code then runs in AutoCAD but it never stops at my breakpoint.

The code is on a thumb-drive so I can move it to different locations. I have a laptop with 64bit Windows Proffesional, and AutoCAD 2011 64bit as well. I have no issues stepping through the very same compiled code. This is also true of my 64bit XP workstation at the office.

Only my home workstation is behaving this way and I have no idea what changed. I have "repaired" both VS2010 and AutoCAD but that did not resolve the issue. Anyone have an idea what I can do?

Debug implementation of URLrewriter.net



After some googling and help from the forum, I have integrated the the URLrewrting.net in my project. There are no error when I build the project, but the URL rewriting does not work. I am able to figure ot where the problem is. Is there a way to debug this. The code is as below:

Debugging Tool: Build a Logging and Event Viewing Library to Help Debug Your .NET Framework-based Ap


Building a basic, reusable application framework can make development quicker and easier. This allows you to focus more on the problems at hand and less on the repetitive tasks involved in building any application. In this article, the author presents a framework that provides facilities to access the registry and an extensible framework for logging messages to a console window or the Event Viewer. This reusable framework can be included as a library in your projects, allowing you to display an enhanced, color-coded message log and dynamically change logging levels.

Debug: Detect and Plug GDI Leaks in Your Code with Two Powerful Tools for Windows XP


In a previous article, the author devised a simple method to detect Graphical Device Interface (GDI) objects that are not properly released by Win32-based applications on Windows 9x platforms. Because some newer versions of Windows require a slightly different approach to GDI leaks, the author has updated his techniques for those operating systems. He builds and explains two tools designed to detect and eradicate GDI leaks in applications running on Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT.

Editor's Note: Elevating Test and Debug


Programming is fun. It's one of the world's great jobs, pure mental exercise with a golden payoff at the end. There's nothing like the feeling of accomplishment when that program you wrote is working, looks good, and is ready to ship.

error 500 in IIS, but work in debug



I have a website that is built in .Net framework 4. I have set up the site in IIS 7 on a win 7 and set the applicationpool to .Net 4. But the weird thing is that I cannot access the site if I go through IIS, I can only access the site if I debug the site from within VS 2010. 

Anyone got any ideas of where I should start to look?

NUnit debugging no longer working



I moved from VS2008 running on XP 32 bit to VS2010 running on Win7 64 bit and just noticed that I can't debug in NUnit like I used to.

On my old system, I just went to Debug|Attach to Process, chose NUnit.exe, and ran my tests from the NUnit GUI. VS2008 would stop at the breakpoints just as normal.

Now when I try this using NUnit on the new configuraiton it just skips over my breakpoints. Any help would be great.

Create longer than 4 characters Soundex Code

Hi all, Does anyone know if it is possible to create a soundex key that is longer than the standard 4 characters? I guess if it doesn't then you just have to create a user defined function? I'm trying to do address matching on a table of customers 3 million records. I was thinking of embarking on full text search if it is not possible. Anyone with any advice always gratefully received. Cheers Ant

How to display breakpoint and debug visual cues with custom activity designer based on WorkflowViewE

Hi,   I am developing custom activity designers based on "WorkflowViewElement" instead of "ActivityDesigner" in my xaml. It allows me to have greater control of the look and feel of the designer. However I noticed that with this approach, the breakpoint visual cue (Dark red solid circle that appears on the left side of the designer when you set breakpoint on the designer) is not visible. It works fine when you write your designed based on "ActivityDesigner". The same behavior happens to the debug visual cue when you debugging the WF. It appears as bright yellow rectangle surrounding the activity designer if you are based on "ActivityDesigner", but it is not available when your designer is based on"WorkflowViewElement". Any help is highly appreciated. Li

How to debug a complex function?

Hi everybody, I got a few complex functions written by my colleague to review. These functions calculate cost of goods using one of the methods (passed as a parameter) (FIFO, RWAC, LAST cost). I've been looking at these functions or running some queries based on these functions, but I'm yet not sure I understand them fully and their logic. What is the best approach for me to test / understand these functions? Thanks in advance.Premature optimization is the root of all evil in programming.
