HEEELLLLPPPP! Breakpoints in assembler code just stopped working

Can anyone please help me figure out why all of a sudden (even after many
restarts of Visual Studio 2005 and reboots, etc) I am no longer able to set
breakpoints in the disassembler window. I should mention that this is
assembler code I generate by writing opcodes to memory, but for a month or so
I had no problems. All of a sudden it stopped working. Is there some
setting somewhere that has gotten set somehow, or did a security download
perhaps shut this capability down? Any insights would be greatly helpful as I
willbecompletely hosed and unable to use Visual Studio 2005if I cannot fix
this.

Thanks for very much.

A bit more information: It seems that the problem is not just limited to my
generated assembler code, but applies to all code in the project. But It
only happens during execution of the program. I can successfully set
breakpoints before I hit F5 and start the program (but of course at that time
none of my generated assembler code exists). Any insights would b greatly
appreciated before I go and do a reinstall. Thanks much.

Not a problem. I figured out the solution myself. In the "KnownIssues.rtf"
there are instructions for resetting Visual Studio 2005back to its
"out-of-the-box" settings. Doing this fixed the problem.
