  • Hi Sharma,

    A first chance exception is when an exception is thrown but there is a catch block to handle it. When running your program you won’t know the exception was thrown because of the catch block. Enabling first chance exceptions stops the debugger whenever an exception is thrown, whether there is a catch block or not.

    To enable first chance exceptions, go to Debug - > Exceptions - > check the “Thrown” checkbox next to Common Language Runtime Exceptions.

    I pick up an article about first chance exception, please refer to the following link.
