How to: Debug with Code Center Premium Source

With the Visual Studio 2010 debugger, you can debug secure shared source from Microsoft MSDN Code Center Premium.

This topic explains how to set up and debug Code Center Premium source code in Visual Studio.

To prepare for debugging with Code Center Premium

  1. Connect your SmartCard reader and insert the card you obtained from the Shared Source Initiative.

  2. Launch Visual Studio.

  3. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  4. In the Options dialog box, open the Debugging node and click General.

  5. Clear the Enable Just My Code (Managed Only) check box.

  6. Select Enable Source Server Support.

  7. Clear Require source files to exactly match the original version.

  8. Under the Debugging node, click Symbols.

  9. In the Symbol File (.pdb) Locations box, clear the Microsoft Server Symbols check box and add the following locations:

    https://codepremium.msdn.microsoft.com/symbols

    src=https://codepremium.msdn.microsoft.com/source/Visual%20Studio%202010/SP1/

    NoteNote

    Be sure to include the trailing slash/ at the end of the path.

    Move these locations to the top of the list to ensure that these symbols are loaded first.

    NoteNote

    These Code Center Premium locations must be listed first so that they are the first locations that are loaded. In Visual Studio 2010, you cannot move any servers above the Microsoft Symbol Servers entry, which is why you must clear the check box.

    To load symbols from the Microsoft symbols during a debug session, do this:

    1. On the Debug menu, choose Windows and then choose Modules.

    2. Select the module that you want symbols for, and then open the shortcut menu. Choose Load Symbols From and then choose Microsoft Symbol Servers.

  10. In the Cache symbols from symbol servers in this directory box, enter a location such as C:\symbols where Code Center Premium can cache the symbols. Caching symbols can significantly improve performance during debugging.

    If you experience difficulty debugging source code with Visual Studio after you complete this procedure, check your cache location for previously cached and outdated symbol files. Remove the outdated symbol files.

  11. Click OK.

  12. Restart Visual Studio to ensure that settings are persisted.

To debug your source code using Attach to Process

  1. Connect your SmartCard reader and insert the card you obtained from the Shared Source Initiative.

  2. Launch Visual Studio.

  3. Open your Visual Studio project.

  4. On the Tools menu, click Attach to Process.

  5. In the Attach to Process dialog box, click Select.

  6. In the Select Code Type dialog box, under Detect these code types, select Native, Managed, and Managed(v4.0).

  7. Click OK to dismiss the Select Code Type dialog box.

  8. In the Available Processes box, select the process you want to debug.

  9. Click Attach.

  10. When you are prompted to confirm your certificate, click OK. Then enter your PIN. Accept the terms of use for Code Center Premium, if you are prompted,.

    Downloading symbols can take lots of time, depending on the network speed. The status bar will indicate when all symbols have been downloaded successfully.

  11. Repeat the attach steps for all managed projects in your Solution.

  4. For each managed project in your solution, do the following

    1. In Solution Explorer, open the shortcut menu for the project and then choose Properties.

    2. Select Debug and then choose Enable unmanaged code debugging.

To debug your solution with Code Center Premium source

  1. In your Package class, set a breakpoint on the package constructor.
