  • Hi mishari82,

    According to the error message, this issue occurs when you press  F12 to navigate to an function define, is it right?

    Please check whether this issue occurs on one of the function or all functions in your project.

    If it occurs on one specific function, I'm afraid that this is because the symbol file missing for this function. Please check whether the .pdb file exist on your machine for the assembly that contains this function. If not, please add the .pdb file on your machine.

    If the file exist, please add a breakpoint on this line of code and press F5 start debugging it. When the breakpoint hit, please open the Modules window from Debug menu -> Windows -> Modules and choose the assembly that you could not navigate, right-click it to choose "Load Symbols".

    If the problem occurs on all function, I suggest you clean your solution and rebuild it to check whether it could be fixed this issue. And please also clear Symbol caches from Tools > Options > Debugging > Symbols > EmptySymbolCache.

    Best Regards,
    Weiwei
