VS2010, Slow C# Debugging

josgood asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-17
I've been using C# for several years and am familiar with the speed of VS2008 and earlier.

VS2010 seems incredibly slow stepping from line to line in the debugger.  

Google lists various posts about IntelliTrace in beta releases of VS2010.  I can't find it in the release version.

Is IntelliTrace the most likely slowdown cause?  Is it likely something else?

I'm debugging a straightforward C# WinForms app, on 64-bit Win7.
