Help! Can't set breakpoints since installing VS 2008 SP1 RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I click in the left hand column, nothing happens. When I try and set through menu I get this error: "Intellisense can not find the specified location. Do you still want to select the breakpoint?" If I click "Yes" no breakpoint appears in the application, and it doesn't work if I run it. The weird thing however is that the"delete all breakpoints" menu option becomes available so I'd guess it's there in some form....

    This is happening in creating a web app or a windows app and I'm using VB...

  • It seems that your Visual Studio is running in wrong states.

    Please run the command below:

    devenv.exe /setup

    devenv.exe /resetskippkgs

    devenv.exe /safemode

    Then create a new web or windows app to repro the problem.

    If it still not working, please consider installing SP1 again. Make sure there is no other software running during installation.
