Error: Unable to Automatically Step Into the Server


For the latest documentation on Visual Studio 2017 RC, see Visual Studio 2017 RC Documentation.

The error reads:

Unable to Automatically Step Into the Server. The debugger was not notified before the remote procedure was executed

This error can occur when you are trying to step into a web service (see Stepping Into an XML Web Service). It can occur whenever ASP.NET is not set up properly.

Possible causes are:

  • The web.config file for your ASP.NET application does not set debug to "true" in (see Debug Mode in ASP.NET Applications).

  • A version of ASP.NET was installed after Visual Studio was installed. ASP.NET should be installed before Visual Studio. To fix this problem, use the Windows Control Panel, Programs and Features to repair your Visual Studio installation.
