Edit And Continue doesn't work :-(

P: n/a
I have used edit And Continue for months in Winforms applications with
VS 2005 TeamEdition x Software Developers.
I have windows vista with all updates.
Also VS has all available updates.

But in the last 2/3 weeks edit and continue has stopped working.

I have used (to test it) a project as described in
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vstudio/to...itContinue.htm

But It doesn't work. The code is read-only!!

I have in project properties:
- configuration Debug
- Advanced Compile options (Enable optimization NON enabled)
- (Generate Full debug
informations)

and in IDE / Tools / options / Debug /
Edit And continue
Enable Edit and continue Checked
JIT: all cheked

But i haven't changed this options from VS installation.
I think (but i'm not sure) that last VS update has disabled Edit and
continue.

Can anyone help me?

Thanks in advance

Disable 'enable optizimations' on the advanced compiler option. Did that help?

Sorry, I missed the fact that you already got that covered. On the debug
tab, what is check under the heading of 'Enable Debuggers' (last items on the
page)?

Hello Gianluca,

It sounds like a product issue.
Would you please let us know the version number of your current VSTS?
(For example: version 8.0.50727.867 (vsvista.050727-8600))

If it is possible for you to paste a screen-shooting of Visual Studio IDE
(when debugging), this is will help on research very much.
My alias is v-******@microsoft.com. You also can send the screen-shooting
to me directly if you failed to paste it in newsgroup.

Let me know if you have any more concern. We are glad to assist you. Thanks.
Have a great day.
Best regards,

Wen Yuan

I found a similar problem.

By accident I found that if I enable the "Drag and drop text editing" option
in the Options dialog under the "Text editor" | "General" page it allows you
to move the execution point and allows you to edit some files (but not all
????) when running the debugger for VB projects

I have found that "Edit-And-Continue" works in quite a few different
ways. I have not test this project but solved an Edit-And-Continue
problem with VS 2005 product family.

The Quick Fix
Make sure "Break All Process when One Process Breaks IS checked under
Debugging->General

What Happens if Not Checked and Edit-And-Continue is Checked
Symptoms:
File will show as read-only in editor but not be read-only in file
system. Changes to this file will bring up a dialog box that will ask
to re-start the program.

There are about a dozen other things that can cause edit-and-continue
to fail including linked files, 64bit code, mixed code, and when run
from process is used.
