Hi,

I am trying to debug a HTA as in step through it line by line - like I can
with C# etc.

I am using Visual Studio Professional 2013 and although I can open the
project and launch my App - when I try to set a break point VS just
ignores it.

I start the process of by doing open Web site and then choose a directory on
my machine. It then presents the files in the directory

Then I do either:

Debug - Start Debugging.
Debug - Step Into

And it opens the HTA and executes it. Internet Explorer is the emulation option
I have set.

So any suggestions on how to make this work?

What I am looking for is the "exact" steps to make this work :)

Thanks,

Ward.

run the code using F10


Maybe the problem you are experiencing, is perhaps with an imported DLL, which you have edited, but the debugger is runing the original code.  In such a case, If you are using tem foundation, check everything in. If not ignore this and run the project using F10 or 'StepOver'
