Debug ASP.NET Web Service in VB.NET

   I'm using Visual Studio.NET 2003, and i need to debug an ASP.NET Web Service consumed from a VB.NET application.
   To simplify things, i've wrote a VB.NET application that adds two numbers (see the attached code). To do that my application consumes a web service. I've created an ASP.NET Web Service project under the same solution as my application  (see the attached code). If i need to debug that service, haw can i do that? If i put breakpoints in service code it has no effect (they are skipped).
   Can you help me?   Thank you!

Imports System.Web.Services
Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        'web reference pt. IIS    - http://localhost/AddThis/Service1.asmx
        Dim a As New localhost.Service1
        Dim x As Int16
        Dim y As Int16
        x = CInt(TextBox1.Text)
        y = CInt(TextBox2.Text)
        MsgBox(a.AddThese(x, y))
    End Sub
End Class
Imports System.Web.Services
<System.Web.Services.WebService(Namespace := "")> _
Public Class Service1
    Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService
    Public c As Int16
    <WebMethod()> _
    Public Function AddThese(ByVal a As Int16, ByVal b As Int16) As Int16
        c = a + b
        Return c
    End Function
End Class

When you hit F11 button on line number 14 , the control should step inside ur web service. Check your web service is built without errors.

Every time you change ur web service, update your web reference from VB application to ensure debugging is working fine. Also check your web reference from VB application pointing to proper web service.
Interesting... try changing :
Dim a As New localhost.Service1
Dim a As New Service1
