Visual Studio "Start Debugging" box is grayed out.

    General discussion

  • Hello,

    So, I'm trying to run my programs from visual studio (So I can learn C++) and the "Start Debugging" and "Start Without Debugging" buttons are grayed out. Even "Hello, world." doesn't work! I tried using C instead of C++, but it won't do that either, nor does VB. What am I doing wrong? Thanks.

  • Hi Henry,

    Could you please tell me what's the version of your Visual Studio?

    Please right click your project and set as startup project then try it again.

    If still no help, please try to create a new C++ or C# console application. Write a hello code into it then try it again.

    If the Start Debugging" and "Start Without Debugging" buttons are grayed out. I suppose there might be something with your visual studio. Please repair your visual studio then try it again,

    Best Regards,

    Lake Xiao
