You can attach to multiple processes when you are debugging, but only one process is active in the debugger at any given time. You can set the active process in the Debug Location toolbar.

NoteNote

The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.

To set the active process

  1. From the Debug menu, click Windows and choose Processes (if the Processes window is not already displayed).

  2. In the Processes window, double-click on the process you want to make active.
