The walkthroughs provided below introduce some important areas of the Visual Studio debugger.

Debugging Walkthroughs

Debugging an Add-in Project
Demonstrates how to create and debug a Visual Studio Add-in project, which is a compiled application that uses the Visual Studio automation object model to manipulate or automate the integrated development environment.
Debugging a Windows Form
Demonstrates debugging a Windows Form. Steps include creating a new Windows form in C#, setting and removing breakpoints, viewing variables, controlling execution, working in the Watch window, stepping, and attaching.
Debugging a Web Form
Illustrates how to debug an ASP.NET Web application (Web form). Steps include creating the Web form, debugging the Web form, setting and removing breakpoints, viewing variables in your application, controlling execution, stepping and continuing, and attaching to the Web form for debugging.
Debugging an XML Web Service
Instructs you on debugging an ASP.NET Web Service application. Steps include: creating and debugging the XML Web service, debugging the Web form, setting and removing breakpoints, viewing variables in your application, controlling execution, stepping and continuing, and attaching to the XML Web service for debugging.
Debugging Hello World, a SQL Stored Procedure
Demonstrates how to debug stored procedures on a SQL Server. Information includes connecting to a database, creating a stored procedure, stepping into a stored procedure, setting breakpoints, viewing parameters and local variables in the Locals window, and dragging variables from the Text editor into the Watch window.

Debugging Samples for Visual C++
