VS2003 IDE not debugging

I was unable to perform debugging using vs2003, I already set debugging asp.net to true in properties section, but still this won't work.

I tried reinstalling vs yesterday it debugging works after.  But this morning the issue was back without any changes made before i shutdown my computer yesterday.

I notice that after i press F5 to start my web app, debugging options such as pause or stop does not appear after the project was loaded to the explorer.  This allows me to press F5 again when I switch back to the source code.

Can anyone help me with my issue to vs2003, I already spend a lot of time finding anwers to my vs2003.

Thanks everyone for any help.

Hi Whighfield, 

I've tried config to IIS, VS properties and Web.config and found out that my problem is that the process aspnet_wp.exe is not automatically attached upon debugging the project.

This were fixed everytime I reinstall my VS but for some time it goes back to the problem again,  Is there a way so automatically attach the process again and after that how could i avoid dettachment of the process?

If we disable Add-ns (“Tools” | “Add-in Manager”) and run “devenv.exe /safemode” loading only the default environment and services, do we still have the problem? This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins are causing problems.

Besides, we can “devenv.exe /resetskippkgs" to avoid loading problem VSPackages.

We also can attach to running process from Visual Studio debugger. For more information, see http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/c6wf8e4z(VS.71).aspx


I look forward to receiving your test results.

Hi Thomas,

Thanks for the info, I believe manual attach of the process resolves my issue.

This should be better now.

VS2003 IDE Question
I could not find an appropriate forum to post this question and hoping it's okay here. I got the following message when I'm in vs2003 and tried to switch to design mode of a form. "Could not open in design view. Quote values differently inside a <%..."value"...%> block. I know it is caused from the following statement. Actually at one point in time I was able to fix it but now I have a hard time to tackle it. Can someone help me to revise it?

Remote Debugging with VS2003
I'm trying to set up debugging with a remote production server and ASP.net 1.1 applications.  I'm at a mid-sized company; consequently, my local server and the production server are on different domains.  I've been unable in the past to use Visual Studio 2003 to debug applications on the production server because of a series of permissions issues, and other issues.  I actually migrated one application to the 2.0 version and VS2005, but debugging turned out not to be any easier because of the domain/permissions issue. My local machine is Windows XP SP2; the remote server ...

Should I switch to VS2003.net
I used to code my simple ASP pages with Frontpage. As I started to learn ASP.NET I used the web matrix and completed all the basic tutorials. I am happy writing code with ASP.NET and started to feel comfortable so I started trying to do the articles from the main page of ASP.NET. However, I can't seem to get some of the articles to work. And clearly some articles are more geared to VStudio then the WebMatrix. Luckly I work for a company where money is not an issue so my question is....

Errors with all my reports after upgrade from Bundeled Crystal.NET (VS2003) to Crystal XI Developer for .NET
All my Crystal reports were developed using the bundled Crystal in VS 2003.  I just installed the Crystal XI for .NET Developer version that we purchased and now I get an error when running my reports.  (I am running them in debug mode on my development machine). I have tested it on several different reports.  I did not change the code, this worked fine in the previous version. First I reference my report (AccountList is the AccountList.rpt report that is in my project): Dim myReport As New AccountList Then I start rolling through the report's tables to update the log...

Upgrade/migration issues from VS2003+.NET 1.1 to VS2005+.NET 2.0
Hi,  Visual Studio is great when everything works well and you don't know what is happening under the hood. However when things don't work it is really frustrating since you just don't know what is going on.  I have a project (a web site) that was originally developed for VS2003 and ASP.NET 1.1. When I loaded this project on VS2005 (and ASP.NET 2.0), VS told me that it will migrate it to the new environment: it did a number of things, generated a migration report and created/moved files under App_code and such directories. I tried this process a number of times b...

Error upgrading from VS2002 to VS2003
I just upgraded three different solutions from VS 2002 to VS2003. All of the solutions are opened from SourceSafe. The first two solutions upgraded without a problem.

The solution opens normally.

VS2003 debug start problem
I'm running Visual Studio 2003 on Win2k Server, w/IIS5. I followed Bo's (thanks, Bo!) excellent instructions (beta.dotnetnuke.dk) for setting up a DNN 2.0.3 development environment in VS. Everything went ok, I can do a build, and I can successfully select "Debug... Start with debugging" and DNN starts up ok. Under the solution's property pages, configuration properties, all of the projects have configuration=debug, platform=.NET, and build=checked. When I select Debug... Start, I get "Error: Unable to Start Debugging on the Web Server". The help mentions sever...

VS2002 Users vs. VS2003
Hi All ! I am probably not the only one to find that DNN 2.0 has been built using the newer version of Visual Studio (VS2003). I myself find that a problem as my complete development environment is built on VS2002 and all the applications I have to support has been built using VS2002. Am I the only one having this major issue ? The core team should make sure that a version for VS2002 Beta I is beeing made available for download ASAP to make the new version of DNN more interesting for the community. It is not financially viable to buy VS2003 for this one application only. In a ye...

QUERY: VS2003 + .NET 2.0
Am wondering if it's possible to make VS2003.NET work with .NET2.0 SDK? Just as we were able to use VS7.1 compiler kit in VS6.0. My company bought lots of VS2003.NET but now we want to use .NET 2.0 but without using VS2005 Express, etc. Possible? Hey, Not that I'm aware of; Visual Studio 2003 doesn't understand the new controls/syntax; you have to use the newer tool.Brian"Trust in the Lord and do what is good; dwell in the land and live securely. Take delight in the Lord, and He will give you your heart's desires" (Psalm 37: 3-4). No, you have to use VS 2005. It can be in...

Upgraded VB.NET from VS2003 to VS2005
I have added new components in C#.  The C# code preforms normally.  But changes in the VB code are not executed.  I can step through the VB code and watch it execute code that is no longer there.  I have run clean, and rebuilt the solution and web site. But I still get old code executed.  Where is the old module stored and how can I replace it? Thanks, Hi, Based on my understanding, when you run the code, the changes on the code is not applied. If we insert the breakpoint on that code, does it can be hit or show some warning message on the breakpoint? This looks ...

VS2003 + .Net fx 2.0
I'm running Win2003 Svr Std Ed. and VS2003.  Earlier this week, I had to install SQL Server Mgmt Studio (sql server 2005), which needs the .Net 2.0 framework, which it installed (along w/ ASP.Net 2.0). Since this installation, when I try and to debug an asp.net (1.1) app, I get an error "Unable to start debugging on web server. Server side-error occurred on sending debug HTTP request.".  From VS, if I start w/o debugging, I get "Server Application Unavailable"...  After all this, if I restart IIS, and don't do anything from VS, I can run the app from outside VS.  Also, i...

IBuySpy Portal problem with VS2003.NET
Hi, I have VS2003.NET, XP Pro and SQL 2000. The .NET framework is 1.1 The problem I am having with the source code is that I cannot authenticate any user. The sproc returns the user name from database which also means that the user should be authenticated. It runs the SetAuthCookie method with success. The resulting page is no different than the initial page. The login component is still there. When I try to access an admin page directly it cannot find any cookie. IIS for sure uses 1.1 framework. The browser security is at minimum and accepts all kind of cookies. Do you think that this ha...
