You can enable Just-In-Time debugging to launch the Visual Studio debugger automatically when a program, running outside Visual Studio, encounters a fatal error.

Procedure

To enable/disable Just-In-Time debugging

  1. On the Tools menu, click Options.

  2. In the Options dialog box, select the Debugging folder.

  3. In the Debugging folder, select the Just-In-Time page.

  4. In the Enable Just-In-Time debugging of these types of code box, select or clear the relevant program types: Managed, Native, or Script.

    To disable Just-In-Time debugging, once it has been enabled, you must be running with Administrator privileges. Enabling Just-In-Time debugging sets a registry key, and Administrator privileges are required to change that key.

  5. Click OK.
