Vs 2013 Pro - breakpoints not being hit - missing pdb file / symbols ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • User1584574419 posted


    I have an ASP.NET web app written in vb.net using VS 2013 Pro (update 5 applied).

    I can deploy and run the web app all fine but when I run under debug (using IIS Express) some breakpoints don't get hit.

    Breakpoints show as yellow dots saying they will not be hit as no symbols loaded. I can't seem to get debug mods to see symbols.

    Is this a VS environment issue or project level issue? How can I reset my project to put pdb files in a specific folder? I have tried using

    the debug settings/paths for servers symbols but still no luck.

    right click on the project in solution explorer, then go to the Build tab and in the Output path put the path where you would expect the .pdb files.

    Grz, Kris.
