Tracing with Visual Studio 2008 works only the 1st time


I use Visual Studio 2008 and TestStand 4.1.1.

I have a c# dll and I'll call a function of TestStand.

In VS, I "join to deal with...". "and choose to attach it to TestStand. I start my sequence and VS to get to the point break that I set myself in VS.

Everything is great.

Now if I "Stop debugging", I do some changes for my dll, recompile all right and reattach to TS, everything seems ok.

But if I start my sequence, do not strike my breakpoints and step runs without me trace in my c# code.

The only workaround is to close TestStand, restart it, reopen the sequence and reinstall VS on it, then works again my breakpoint.

What's wrong? I wouldn't restart TestStand whenever I do change the dll and reattach. I tried to unload all modules also with no success.

I do something wrong or solutions to avoid restarting TestStand after changes to the c# code and you want to draw it.

Thank you.

Hi Matt,

First of all, I tried to replicate what you experience following your instructions, but I couldn't recompile the DLL after the stop debugging in Visual Studio, because the DLL was still in use in TestStand.  After I unloaded all the modules, I could recompile.  I then re-attached and saw what you were doing.  So, to get around him, I tied to the process in a slightly different way.  In Visual Studio, I went to tools' attach to process, and then chose the seqedit.exe process.  Before mounting, I pressed the Select button on the right side of the dialog box in the middle of changing the type of code we are debugging.  Select the radio button "Debug these code types" and verify that "Managed".  This will ensure that the debugger attaches only to managed code (c#).  After I did, I could run my sequence again without having to restart TestStand.

I would like to know if it works for you.

  • Memory minimum allocation for Vista Business Edition with Visual Studio 2008 VM?

    Long time listener, first time caller...

    Please excuse me if this question is answered somewhere else, I tried from Google and it came only with a response that was sort of what I was looking for, but was specific to a Macbook with Fusion...

    I want to create a Vista Business Edition (SP1) virtual machine with Visual Studio 2008 (which I think also is delivered with SQL 2005 Dev Edition) and I was wondering what the minimum memory allocation should be for this in order to make it work properly?

    Thank you


    Hello and welcome to the forums.

    Amount of minimum support from Microsoft for Vista Business is 512 MB and 768 MB or more recommended for Visual Studio.  1280MB is the minimum.  Personally, I do not want anything less than 2 GB to a virtual machine with Vista and Visual Studio - 1 GB each.

    One of the great benefits of virtualization is that you can start this virtual machine with 1.5 GB and try it.  If the memory is not sufficient, then it is simple to give another 0.5 GB to the virtual machine and try again.

    Good luck!

    After installing Measurement Studio 2009, I noticed that it takes a long time (30-60 seconds) to open a Visual Studio project.

    I do not have an internet connection on my development computer and suspect he might be waiting on some kind of operation of the network to time out.  I had problems with Visual Studio in the past as well and had to work around them by adding entries to my hosts file (to redirect some addresses of Microsoft to the local IP address - this causes network operations to expire immediately).

    Just curious if anyone has encountered this kind of slow startup time and found a solution.

    Thank you!

  • < iframe > link to #anchor work only the second time

    I explore a way to offer a local within a framework of content Web HTML file so that it starts at a specific HTML anchor point rather than the top of the HTML page.

    Now, given that the Web Content overlay of DPS does not support URL + format (e.g. myfile.html #myanchor) of the anchor chain, I thought that I could achieve the desired result by loading an HTML file in the superposition of Web content that points to the HTML file and its anchor named in a tag < iframe >.

    It is where it gets boring. The solution works... but only on the second time you call to the top of the Web content overlay (normally hidden in an MSO).

    The first time I have call the overlay Web Content in my article DPS on the iPad, however, the HTML page but not the specified anchor point, or indeed at the top of the page HTML - instead, it seems to start a little more down the anchor. If I reject the superimposition of Web content (in my case, switch to another State of the object) and return, the HTML code recharge starting at the position of the anchor, exactly as planned. I can close the folio, reopen it and the behavior is always correct. It was only the first time that it fails to do the right thing.

    I am very happy that my solution works on the second, third and every opportunity, but it's very important that readers see first working time.

    I tried to delay automatic playback of the content of the Web, but this makes no difference. The anchor is identified using the tag "id".

    Any ideas?

    Thank you, Neil. But you can ask your guys to withdraw. Someone made me a coffee strong tonight and I realized that I was this approach from the wrong angle. I've seen this number of HTML pages requiring a refresh before you display it correctly in other circumstances, even in Chrome on my computer, so I doubt that it is a specific problem of the DPS - maybe it's something in webkit.

    Anyway, the coffee made me realize that I have an iframe to load another HTML file to an anchor. All I need is to pop a little GoToAnchor script in thetag and a call at the beginning of thetag.

  • Interactive report Javascript Refresh, working only the first time


    I'm trying to implement a dynamic action on an interactive report that fires a pl/sql procedure and then reload the IR.

    I have something like this:

    Select par.*,
    WHEN (SELECT 1 OF THE AddressBook ch WHERE ch.usr_id = (select id where email = usr: APP_USER) AND ch.address_id = IS NOT NULL
    THEN ' < img src = "" #IMAGE_PREFIX #wwv_cancel.gif "class alt"Y"="delAddressFromBook"id =" "| par.ID | "" / > "
    ELSE ' < img src = "" #IMAGE_PREFIX #add.gif "alt ="N"class ="addAddressToBook"id =" "| par.ID | " » / >"
    Mapped END
    of nominal addresslist

    My dynamic action uses the '.addAddressToBook' jquery selector, and it fires properly the first time I click Add image. My pl/sql code runs correctly and ist updated IR.
    It is, when I click the second time in another entry, nothing happens. Looks like the javascript works always something.

    Updating of the IR ist done with javascript gReport.pull ().

    Thanks in advance.



    If you bind an event javascript on an element that is get updated then after that it gets updated, it will no longer be bound to her event. It is possible to use the event to this situation ( delegation, he took advantage of event bubbling ( and handles the event to an element that is not updated to a kind of AJAX call.

    The following code binds the event listener for the document, but it does that raise the event handler if the initiator of the event matches the selector ".addAddressToBook". I chose the document object, because each page has a document, but you can consider using a parent element that is much closer to the initiator of the event.

    //jQuery 1.7+ use "on"
    $(document).on("click", ".addAddressToBook", function(event){
        alert('addAddressToBook Clicked');
    //jQuery1.4.2+ use "delegate"
    $(document).delegate(".addAddressToBook", "click", function(event) {
        alert('addAddressToBook Clicked');

  • Why my animated themes work only the first time that I open the window? Everyone I tried stops animate if I close the window and open a new one.

    Hi mate,

    Sorry, but just because one person in a MSDN forum has randomly the same machine you, does not mean that there is a related problem of the machine. Technically in comparing it s absolutely the same material as in an office and so why Don t you contact Microsoft technical support?

    It seems that it is certainly unwanted Microsoft and has NOTHING to do with Toshiba hardware or software, so please see MS support sites or give them a call, because it s THEIR software which won´t operate according to THEIR operating system.

  • Problem with Oracle with Visual Studio development tools

    I have Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate and SQL Server 2008R2 with Visual Studio 2008 (BIDS) installed on my laptop (Windows 7 SP1).

    I installed Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio.  I connect to Oracle 11 GR 1 material.

  • FDK11 supports Visual Studio 2008?

    We use a client based on 10 FDK in the IDE of Visual Studio 2008. Now the same client does not work with FDK 11 but if I convert the application in 2010 it works. If FDK 11 does not support the VSTS 2008 or a lower version?

    Hi Venketraja,

    According to FDK, FDK11 requires VS2010. My own experience, I have found it is true, as I have been unable to build a client FDK11 with VS2008. So now, I have the two IDEs installed without any problems so far, although both are open at the same time. Also, I'm using VS2010 Express, which was free. Apparently, there are some components of the project that cannot create the Express version, but as long as they are there because it's an existing project, it works OK.

    I want to use the Labview/CVI following commando: PlotWaveform in Visual Studio 2008.

    I use the following code:

    This error means that you place an order for wrong type for the function in question. And that's because you create a control of type CTRL_NUMERIC instead of CTRL_GRAPH or CTRL_GRAPH_LS.
