I am used to working with visual studio 2008 professional, which has a QuickWatch debug window where I can dynamically evaluate lines of code at runtime. This feature seems to be missing in visual web developer express. Is it possible to enable this in VWD Express, and if so how?

-Yes, I have already searched google.
-Yes, I have looked in Debug-Windows
-Yes, I have looked in Tools-Options

I have never tried the Express edition but have you tried, while in debug mode, to highlight a variable and hit Shift-F9

That works in professional, not express.
I found something on google that said in 2005 quickwatch was only available in professional and higher, so I guess its probably the same in 2008.
This is very annoying, especially when I want to look at an object's base members or a specific item in a collection using an indexer from the debugger.
