Recently, some of our readers have shared how to debug .NET applications without Visual Studio.
Debugging plays an important role in a developer’s work. This becomes even more important when something doesn’t quite fit the production in correctly. If users are lucky, your entire application, still running, will be compiled with a tokenized program (PDB or database). Because I keep forgetting how to help you debug in this way, I’m writing articles here to remind you to help yourself and also to remind your organization that the world doesn’t move backwards if you don’t build with a pdb record. . This copy of Visual Studio is also required for debugging.
Debugging A .NET Application When Source Code Is Not Available
How do I Debug a .NET application?
Press F5 to run in program debug mode. Another way to start debugging is to choose Debug > Start Debugging from the menu. Type a string in the console panel when the program prompts for almost any name, then press Enter. Program execution Set when it reaches the breakpoint and before the console.
Debugging even an application if the source code is not available can be done here using tools like dotPeek jetBrains. – dotpeek is a .NET decompiler. .Can .decompile .all .binary .files/.NET DLLs.
The first time you use dotPeek it will usually show you which assemblies to decompile (which PDBs to build against) from your organization. Choose the option thatand suitable for your site. I selected the assemblies in the open assembly explorer.
After you .choose.assemblies.you.can.decompile.it.is.a.symbol.server.but.available.at.http://localhost:33417
To make this post awesome, I created a simple .NET Core console app. I will unhandled an exception that will start the application.
To configure symbols as part of Visual Studio, select Tools Options -> Debugging -> Symbols -> Symbol Arrangement
Also be sure to disable the “Just My Code” option in the entire debug area (Tools Options -> Debugging -> General)
It can be helpful to uncheck Require source files to match source files exactly. This can happen if the process’s executable doesn’t match most of the source part exactly.
After this is done, you can put any process in Debug Go away. In my case, since my application type is console, I positioned the one generated from the acquisition line process (dotnet).
Do you need Visual Studio for .NET core?
You can use your favorite IDE like Visual Visual Studio, Studio Code, Sublime Text, etc. for . NET core. We’re using Visual Studio 2019 here. If you don’t mind having Visual Studio on your Emergence machine, it’s recommended that you install the latest version of Visual Studio 2019.
Set a breakpoint wherever you want,Both the debugger has exited. In my scenario, I have configured the home page to use the main input method, which is pointless since the input was recently entered
Interact with the application until the breakpoint is reached. After that, you can debug the application as usual. Here the whole process can be filmed in a very short video.

How do I Debug a .NET service?
Install your service.Start all services. You are yoursopen in a Visual Studio .NET project.Then select “Process” from the “Debug” menu.Click “Show Procedure Flows”.find available processes for all processes created by your service.
I came across a site posted by jetBrains where they got a dotPeek to debug from a crash dump article (useful for analyzing any crashes like iis).
Debug A NuGet Package
SymbolSource – dispatch describing the process. To help the client, I have a second release which shows how to do this
- Go to You > Tool Options > Debugger > General.You uncheck
- Just “Include only my code)” checkbox (managed).
- Disable “Enable stepping through .NET Framework source code”. Yes, this is considered misleading, but if you don’t, Visual Studio will ignore your ritual server command (see below).
- Mark “Enable provisioning server support”.
- Uncheck “Original folders must match new version exactly”
- Go to Tools Options -> Debugger -> Symbols.
- Select a folder for the main icon/local source cache.
- Add icon servers under “Location (icon file.pdb)”. Pay attention to the order, since all servers may have symbols for the same binaries: with or without recommendations. We recommend the following configuration:
http://srv.symbolsource.org/pdb/Publicor any authenticating option (see above)
http://srv.symbolsource.org/pdb/MyGetor ours (checked above)
- (other symbol servers sources)
- (other symbol servers without source)
After setting up the image server, you will be able to debug the application, your own, as a human would normally do.
I hope you find this article helpful as you debug your systems and NuGet! packages Leave your jokes below if you have a friendand solutions, these tricks can be effective. I’ll be happy to edit my post to possibly include it.
How do I Debug a .NET application in Visual Studio?
Currently select the ASP.NET Core project in Visual Studio Solution Explorer, click the Properties icon or press Alt+Enter, right click and select Properties.Select the debug option and click the link for the custom launch interface under Open Debug Launch Profiles.Select a tuning profile for using debugging.
Whenever I speak at Microsoft as a speaker, the quality of many people question the MacBook my Pro. The first thing you probably think is that I am a developer and I have a Windows virtual machine to use Visual Studio. At least frankly, questions like “What does a Microsoft guy do with one device?” apple completed. Maybe our religious wars are giving way to maybe pragmatism, maybe the news that we have a .Core net since 2016 and can develop ASP.NET applications for Mac is getting more and more popular.
