Visual Studio 2017 F5 vs Ctrl F5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-2084317630 posted
    I have moved from VS Express for Web 2012 to Visual Studio 2017 Community Edition.

    I am developing an MVC application.

    One of the most shocking changes I've seen is that when I use Ctrl + F5 for testing, I sometimes get the previous build, so none of my new code changes go through.

    I have to use F5 for the changes to go through. On my 2012 software, the changes just took every time.

    I use Ctrl F5 a heck of a lot more and save F5 for the more confusing problems if I actually need to debug something. So much that maybe I should just change the hotkeys for this. I wonder if I'm the minority in this habit.

    Anyway, is there a way to have Ctrl F5 return to the state where it accepts my new code changes?

    Also, IIS Express seems to be a lot more eager to exit. After I publish, I'll notice the current IIS Express instance will no longer respond to any new requests, so I'll often have to rebuild.

    Hi Emwat_Oon,

    generally when you press ctrl + F5 , it start without debugging.

    I suggest you to check for any pending updates if available.

    most of the issues get solved in updates.

    so you can try to have a check and if still you face the same issue then I suggest you to post your feedback on Developer Community.

    Developer Community

    Visual Studio Developer Team will try to make a test and if the issue is there then they will try to fix it in new update.
