Unable to step through code in IDE in Debug Mode - Using VB.NET 2005 Express
Posted on 2007-04-02
Using MS Visual Basic 2005 Express on Windows VISTA Computer.
I need to debug a problem in my application. I can set breakpoints and it seems to break at the point they are set, but I can NOT access the IDE to step through the code. In fact, the application appears to be LOCKED, but if I press F8 several times, it eventually comes back to where I can close the application.
I've checked the configuration and it's in Debug mode.
I can use ALT-TAB and see the IDE and other windows, but I can NOT change to any of them. No matter what I've done, I cannot go to the IDE and step through the code to see what's happening. I don't need to change any code, I just need to see where it is when it's having problems.
Any ideas what might be wrong? Why can't I step through the IDE when it's running in Debug Mode?
