If your code has native frames that are invisible in the Call Stack window, stepping out of managed code can produce unexpected results. As a workaround, you can use a breakpoint instead of Step Out.

To step out of managed code when native frames are missing from the call stack display

  1. In the native code, set a location breakpoint after the call to managed code.

  2. On the Debug menu, choose Continue.

    When the managed call is completed, execution will stop at the breakpoint in native code.
