Debugging Does Not Work on Visual Studio Express 2013


  • Hello,

    I am trying to debug my c++ code cpp file but it won't let me.

    Like I cannot press the debugging (F5) or run without debugging (ctrl+f5).

    These selections are grayed out preventing me from clicking.

    My visual studio express 2013 is running in default setting.

    Please help! Thank you!

  • Hi ChoDing,

    Thanks for your post.

    I have encountered the problem before.

    The cause for me is that I have set the multiple startup projects. And one of the project can’t be debugged.

    For example : Database PROJECT

    So Change the Startup Project to "Single Startup Project"(Right click your solution and click Properties) and selecting the proper project which allows you to debug the solution.

    Best Regards.
