Open IE when debugging with Visual Studio 2005

Visual Studio .Net


  • 1. VS arbitrarily closes source files when entering/exiting debugger
    I have had this problem for some time (since the first release of VS.NET) and it is really starting to drive me nuts.. When debugging a native C++ program, VS closes some source files that are open in the IDE. This does not happen every time I start the debugger, but it does happen often. There does not seem to be a pattern to which files it closes. It also happens sometimes when exiting the debug session, although not as often (?) I regularly have 20 or more source files open at once A bigger problem is that when the source files are closed, there is no prompt to save any changes, NOR are the changes saved Has anyone else run across this?
  • 2. Getting the IDE to generate a dataset from a sqlconnection in a non UI project?
    Using a winform/UI project you can drop a sqlconnection, then pop up the connection wizard, select an sql database, and autogenerate all the code for updates, inserts, etc. Is there a way to do this for a class library that has no UI surface? (Other than doing it for the UI project and copy/pasting the code). Thx.
  • 3. is it possible to set variables on a sloution
    So that in every project included in the solution, you can read this variable. Actually it should be a const. This should be used to have different binary folders for different solutions. However these differnet solutions include the same projects: Solution1: Project1 Project2 Project3 Solution2: Project1 Project3 Project4 Best regards Klaus
  • 4. VS.NET 2003 loses references on switching solutions.
    Hello, I have a solution with 3 class library projects in it. I have a second solution with a single project referencing the 3 class libraries. The class library files are referenced from the Debug directory where they're built - I haven't moved them to the public area. If I switch to the class library, whether I make a change and rebuild or not, when I switch back to other project and rebuild, I get all kinds of errors related to missing assembly references. If I shut down the IDE and start it up again, the problem goes away. But as soon as I toggle projects, it happens again. I've been unable to reproduce the problem using stub projects on either .NET or .NET CF. Has anyone seen this before? Cheers, .pd.

Just a wild guess, but you probably have Firefox as your default browser on 
your machine. If so, reset IE to the default and try this again.

Resetting IE as default browser did not help. Recently I found that VS2005 
has its own browser list, and default browser can be changed by selecting 
"Browse with..." on context menu of solution.

Anyway thanks for your reply.

I use following C# code behind an aspx file to send a *.pdf file to the

The variable "buffer" is of type byte[] and is filled with the contents of a 
*.pdf file.

    this.Response.ContentType = "application/pdf";

All works fine for years. When the aspx file is requested, the acrobat 
reader is activated and the pdf file is shown.

Now I have installed Visual Studio 2005 parallel to Visual Studio 2003. All 
seems to run as expected, except the pdf file is not shown anymore. The 
Internet Explorer 6 shows only a white background, but does not start 
acrobat reader. When I try to see the source text, I get an error message, 
that the "xml source cannot be shown".

After deinstalling Visual Studio 2005 by Windows System Recovery all runs 
normal again.
Any idea?

4.IE 8 and Visual Studio 2005

Hey all, 

Intersting bug. 
I have an ASP.NET application I am working on. When I start the web page 
using the VS 2005 it opens a browser pointed to a virtual server. When I 
stop/start/stop the server there is no problem. When all browsers are closed 
I then launch IE 8 on its own and it tells me the browser closed unexpectedly 
and asks If I want to restore it. If I click on the affirmative it will open 
a browser for every time I stopped the application in the debugger. 

at one point I had 50 or so browsers open. The funny thing is that the web 
page it goes to appears to be random. Some will got to a website I had 
previously visited but most try to go back to the virtual server VS 2005 has 

5.Visual Web Developer 2005 Express (not in IE debug menu)


I've been using VS2003.NET for a long time and I saw
this express web developer version and thought it might
suit my needs better. I debug JavaScript embedded in
webpages with it.

What I usually do is click the View menu in Internet
Explorer, select the Script Debugger menu and then
choose either "Open" or "Break at Next Statement".
Either option takes me to a window that asks me
which of the installed debugger tools I might want to
use. Normally that's only offered me VS2003.NET
as a possible debugger.

I expected that when I installed Visual Web Dev
2005 Express (which said it could debug JavaScript
in web pages) that I'd now have TWO debuggers
to choose from. Instead I still only have VS2003.

Is there something I need to do? Or did I misunderstand
what this program is about.
