How Do I Debug A Client/Server app in VS.NET?


I've built a remoting solution with a client and a server.

I want to start the server, and then run the client against it.

Since I can only make one project in a solution be the "Set As Startup
Project" how can I start the server, and then start the client, both in
debug mode?

Start two copies of VS.

Or, you can right click on the solution and select "Properties". Under
the "Common Properties" section, select the "Startup Project" item. On the
right, you are presented with three choices:

Current Selection
Single Startup Project (this is selected by default)
Multiple Startup Projects

Select the last option, "Multiple Startup Projects". Then, in the
window below that lists all of the projects in the solution, under the
"Action" column, select "Start" for the executables you want to run that are
included in the project. You can modify the startup order by highlighting a
project and clicking the up or down arrow buttons to the right of the grid.

Then, click "OK", and hit F5 to start the project, and both will run.

Hope this helps.
