Hi

I am having problem where my breakpoints will not hit on certain methods of a file. ( till will hit properly on some other methods of the same .cs file).

I am using VS 2015 and trying to debug my class library.

Can some one help me figure this out? Thanks in advance.

I am calling that method because, I could see the output on the screen.

How can I see which version of the class library that I am running? What I did was, I build the class library project and referenced it on my main project. This makes it the same version right?

You say some methods will hit the breakpoint but others won't.  That still sounds like you use the same class library but don't call that method, or at least the code in the method where you have the breakpoint.

>>I am calling that method because, I could see the output on the screen.
Put the breakpoint on where you call the method and then step into the method rather than having the breakpoint in the method.
