can't debug-run copy of an app while original app is running RRS feed

  • Question

  • I made a copy of a VB application project, to make a copy of it for testing.

    But when I debug the test copy while the orginal is still running (debugging from Visual Studio), focus changes to the original's main form, and the test copy does not run.

    If I try to single step the test copy, same thing, focus changes to original, and test copy does not even step.

    If I stop the original app, then I can run the copy.

  • Ah, hah!

    I had checkmarked the "Make Single Instance Application" a few years back.
