Debugging a Classic ASP app with visual studio

Hi there,

I'm trying to debug a Classic ASP app through visual studio 2005.

I go to the debug menu and click on "attach to process" and attach to dllhost.exe but then when I put a breakpoint and go to ..localhost/filename.asp it doesn't stop on it!

Any ideas why this might be?

Try putting in an error;

response.write("hello";

The error should kick back into Visual Studio from wherever the code is placed. Try and ensure you are connected to the correct dllhost.exe - there can be a few of these running at any given time.
