How to turn off Managed Debugging Assistant in VB.NET (2005)

I can't seem to locate the appropriate area in VS 2005 where I can
accomplish this -- is this a C# only option?

Thanks, Rob.

I know - it's hard to find. It is there with Visual Studio VB.Net - it
just takes a while to find it.

It's under the Debug/Exceptions... pulldown menu item. Sometimes I get
weird errors about LoaderLock with that set so I go into the Managed
Debugging Assistants area and uncheck the LoaderLock checkbox. Seems
to occur sometimes with certain OCX'es I use. Unchecking makes the
nagging errors go away with no other problems.

Are you talking from the Menu ? No such option on my Menu? My options are:

Windows
Continue
Break All
Stop Debugging
Detach All
Terminate All
Restart...
Attach to Process
Step Over
Toggle Breakpoint
Delete All Breakpoints
Disable All Breakpoints

Now if you're talking about Tools | Options and select Debugging -- which
one is it?

Is it "Enable the exception assistant" ?? I believe I want that
enabled...any further clues.

Thanks, Rob.

Not sure about yours, but My Visual Studio 2005 main pulldown menus are
File, Edit, View, Project, Build, Debug, Data, Tools, Window,
Community, and Help. It's very strange that you don't even have a File
and Edit menu items -- that's virtually universal in all Windows
applications. I don't even have a Debugging item in the dialog box
that appears when I do Tools/Options. What version of VS are you
using? Are you SURE it's VS2005? Are you talking about a toolbar
rather than a menu bar possibly?

Now, if you then drop down the Debug pulldown menu from the main VS2005
menubar, you'll see Exceptions... as one of the items you can select.
Select that and you can turn off the Assistant.
Good luck,
ImageAnalyst.

No "Exceptions ..." listed under my Debug menu.

Try typing Ctrl+Alt+E. That's what they have as the shortcut for it.
My debugging menu has, when looking at a form
Windows
Start Debugging
Step Into
Step Over
Exceptions...
Toggle Breakpoint
New Breakpoint
Delete All breakpoints

When stopped at a breakpoint in code:
Windows
Continue
Break all
Stop debugging
Step into
Step over
Step out
Quick Watch
Exceptions
Toggle Breakpoint
New Breakpoint
Delete All breakpoints

I have no idea why your is different and the Exceptions item is
missing, but try the keyboard shortcut and see if that works. Are you
doing a standard Windows executable or some other kind of project, like
an ActiveX server or something?

It may have gotten removed by accident or perhaps magic :-) Anyways, if
you want to add it back then goto Tools...Customi ze and click the
Commands tab. Then click the Rearrange commands button. Select the
"Menu Bar:" radio and then select Debug from the drop down. Click the
Add... button and select "Debug" from the left listbox and then
"Exceptions " in the right list box and click OK. That should add it
back to the debug menu.

Thanks,
