Workaround: Slow steping in debugging in VB2005

P: n/a
I know some of you have seen this problem. Stepping through code in the
debugger is slow as heck in Visual Studio 2005. Well here is the problem,
Edit and continue. Because edit and continue does run time compileing of
code as it executes, it causes a big slow down in execution time. To disable
this and return the debugger to the normal speed as it was in VS.NET 2003,
do the following.

Go to tools menu > options

Select debugging form the left tree expand it
click on Edit and Continue in the list.

Uncheck "Enable edit and continue"

rebuild your project and step through code, it should be fast as VS.NET 2003
was now.

Brian,

I'd like to get some information this issue.

1) How many projects do you have in your solution?

2) What are the specs on your machine: memory, CPU, disk size

3) Does this happen all the time or only in certain cases?
