    i selected the Debug symbols also for the website setup project output option.

    it is loading the pdb file of webservice, but it is not copying the pdb file of other projects the web site is referring

    From your description, I understand that your Web Setup project doesn't copy the .pdb file of the assembly that your ASP.NET website refers to, right?

    Where is this .pdb file? Please make sure it is in Bin folder of your website. If you add reference to assembly from GAC, this assembly won't be copied to Bin folder. If so, we need to copy this assembly and its pdb file to website's Bin folder.


    I look forward to receiving your test results.

    the projects i am referring to were in the same solution.

    and the pdb files are located in the web site bin folder.
