Debug C# with Visual Studio 2005
When I want to debug C# applications with Visual Studio 2005, the debugger doesn't stop at breakpoints. What is the problem?
You have to install the .NET Compact Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1 or 2 Redistributable on your development machine.
Otherwise, Visual Studio 2005 doesn't recognize that the C# application is loaded on the Windows CE device and deactivates the breakpoints. The Service Pack of the .NET Compact Framework is not installed automatically with the Visual Studio 2005 or the Service Pack 1 of the Visual Studio 2005. It's also not part of the platform-specific Software Development Kit. You can download Service Pack 2 from the Microsoft download center.
