My VS2005 solution contains localhost website (File--> New---> Web Site) which uses MyDll.dll (written in C#)
I would like to debug my Web-site (which calls the method from MyDLL)and debug the code in MyDll.dll when execution goes thru
MyDll. I know that I can add project containing MyDll files (C# class) to the solution - it will allow me to debug As described above.
MY questions is: Is it possibe to debug (to step thru lines of code in my Web-site and MyDll when execution goes thru MyDll) Without Adding project containing MyDll files (C# class) to the solution??

see this http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1130417/how-to-debug-a-referenced-dll

If your trying to debug a dll file without a having all the source code, you will need the debugging symbols (the "pdb" file) to be in the same folder as the dll. Check that your projects are generating debug symbols (project properties => Build => Advanced => Output / Debug Info = full); and if you have copied the dll, put the pdb with it.

Yes, but you have to set a reference to the source code instead of using a reference to the dll as you usually do.

Add your dll project to you ASP.NET application with File...Add...Existing project.

In the ASP project, go to the Reference window, but instead of adding the reference from the .NET or Browse tab, add it from the Project tab. You will thus reference the source code. If debugging is enabled for the dll project (as explained by Mez4343), you will be able to set breakpoint and move step by step into as if the ASP and dll projects where only one.

Yes.

You cannot have two references to the same project. The compiler would not know which one to use.
