  • You can debug your own code, not the source code for the WinRT APIs. if you have a problem with the APIs themselves, you can open a support case or a new post on this forum.

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.

  • This is about debug into the Source Code of the .Net Framework class library. I'm not sure if it applies to the .Net only components you use above the WinRT in case you build a CLR based application but most of the WinRT APIs are implemented in native code and you can't step into them with the debugger.

  • Thanks for the quick reply.

    Could you please tell me what sort of debugging does this link talk about : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/vstudio/cc667410.aspx

    Thanks

  • Oliver is correct. .NET code has been released, but WinRT code is not.
