Ignore exceptions from a referenced Assembly


When I debug a project that contains a file path reference to another assembly and an exception is caught and handled in that assembly, VS will still stop and show me the exception.  How do I get VS to ignore the exception?

I'm using the Unity application block from microsoft and at first, VS studio would not stop on exceptions from UNITY assemblies.  But then I had to apply a strong name license to my application, which caused me to recompile the UNITY assemblies.   Now whenever I debug my code, its stops on Exceptions that are handled with in the UNITY assemblies.  Its very annoying to have to press f5 everything I debug my app.

Hi OFGemini,

Within VS goto Debug -> Options and Settings ensure "Enable Just My Code (Managed Only)" is checked.

Then goto Debug -> Exceptions and ensure Thrown is unticked and User-Unhandled is ticked.

Hope this helps.
