Edit and Continue Error Message Dialog Box

This dialog box appears when you are debugging in a language that supports Edit and Continue, but Edit and Continue is not available for the type of code changes you have made. The error message inside the box provides a more detailed explanation. Possible reasons for seeing this dialog box include:

  • You tried to edit managed code when unmanaged debugging was enabled. Edit and Continue does not work with mixed-mode debugging.

  • You tried to edit SQL Server code.

  • You tried to edit code while debugging a Dr. Watson dump.

  • You tried to edit code after an unhandled exception occurred and the option "Unwind the call stack on unhandled exceptions" was not selected.

  • You tried to edit code while debugging an embedded runtime application.

  • You tried to edit code in a program that you attached to rather than starting from the Debug menu.

  • You tried to edit optimized code.

  • You tried to edit managed code when the target is a 64-bit application. If you want to use Edit and Continue, you must set the target to x86. (Project Properties, Compile tab, Advanced Compiler setting.).

  • You tried to edit code in an assembly that was modified during debugging and has been reloaded.

  • You tried to edit code in an assembly that has not been loaded.

  • You started debugging an old version of your application (since the new version has build errors).

  • You tried to edit code while it was running.

OK

Exit the dialog box and cancel the immediately preceding edit attempt.
