pdb files not being created in vs 2008

I have an asp.net web site that I am working with in visual studio 2008
(It was built using file directory)

It has one project and the mode is debug

The name of the project is fsmwebinterface2008.

I keep compiling it in debug mode and for the life of me I can't find an fsmwebinterface2008.pdb

The web.config doe have

      <compilation debug="true" strict="false" explicit="true">

I have seen posts to delete the debug and obj folder but I can find these either

Please help .....this is driving me nuts!!!!!

You should be able to debug still. You just won't see the PDB files because they're not persisted.

If it is actually a "Website" project rather than a "Web Application" project then there won't be any DLL or PDB files generated. Website applications are dynamically compiled when used so there is no output.

To enable .pdb generation, goto

Project Properties > Compile Tab > Advanced Compile Options.
Goto Generate Debug Info (dropdown list) and verify that it is selected proper (should not be selected as None.)

Does that mean you can't debug?  I could swear I have before but now I get the dreaded
Breakpoint Will Not Currently Be Hit message




Forgot to mention the other thing that drives me nuts is if I go to project properties in vs 2008 I don't see a compile tab

I see the following

Build

Start Options

here's what's really weird

I moved my break point up to the start up page and the breakpoint is reached.

It is only at a page that is reached down stream that the breakpoint is an issue

Try restarting the web server, it may have cached an older version of the temporary assemblies.

upon further review it looks like all is well until the response.redirect is executed

The new page is displayed but breakpoints are no longer executed

Is there a way around this?

Upon further review, I'm thinking my last comment is actually a new question  so I closed this question and opened a new one
