I am having a problem with the debugger in Visual Studio 2015 Community on my desktop Windows 10 PC. When I set a breakpoint and then Step Through my code by pressing the F8 key (Step Into), when I come to the following code: "If Method = "MACRS Then",  I get the following message: "Operators.vb not found. You need to find Operators.vb to view the source for the current call stack frame. Locating source for f:\dd\vb\runtime\msvalib\helpers\Operators.vb." I have searched my hard drive for the Operators.vb file, but cannot find it anywhere. (I do not have an F drive, and never did.)

I have Visual Studio 2015 Community on my laptop and the debugger seems to step over that same line without throwing an exception. So I compared the two debug exception settings and set them the same, but this did not fix the problem on my desktop version. I also did a search on my laptop to see if I could find the Operators.vb file and copy it to my desktop PC, but I did not find the Operators.vb file on my laptop either.

I have Cleared and then Rebuilt my application, but this also did not fix the problem. I even deleted and then re-installed Visual Studio 2015 Community, and that also did not fix the situation.  I have searched the internet for solutions, but there was no help there either. The topics that seemed to be right on topic had no solution, just the question.

This is frustrating because it seems like it should be a simple fix, a debug setting, or something similar, but I can't figure it out. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
