Debug.Print and Debug.Write no longer work in Visual Studio 2010
Posted on 2011-03-17
Suddenly Debug.Print statements in my C# code are no longer being displayed in my Output window. I am running a Debug configuration of a simple Hello World C# Form application. "Project Properties/Build/Define DEBUG constant" is selected. Tools/Options/Debugging items are set to default values, including "Redirect all Output Window text . . ." cleared. I have made no app.config modifications (regarding TraceListeners or anything). I have relied on Debug.Print for years. This problem occurs in all my projects now.
Not sure if this is relevant but when I step over the first Debug.Print statement, this shows in the Output window: " Loaded 'C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.Net\assembly\GAC_MSIL\System.Configuration\v4.0_188.8.131.52__b03f5f7f11d50a3a\System.Configuration.dll'
