VS.NET Debugging

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
I have two projects.  Project #1 is a DLL that is used by Project #2.  When I first started on the project I was using Visual Studio 2005.  Fast forward, that computer crashed, and I had to get a new one.  And now I'm running Visual Studio 2010 (Not because of it's a new computer, but I needed better Multi Threading debugging tools.)  

When I first started developing on these projects, I had both projects open and I would write code.  I would then run project #2, and if there was any bad code in Project #1 that caused an error, Prioject #2 would magically open up the source file from Project #2 and show me the error in Visual Studio 2005.  My guess is that I had a debugging setting on or off that allowed this that does not turned on by default in 2010.  Does anyone know what setting allows this feature of debugging?
