ASP.NET 1.1 & 2.0 on Windows XP breaks the VS.NET 2003 debuggerPosted: February 13, 2006
I rebuilt my system only last week due to it going to "blue-screen heaven" and hadn’t tried to debug anything in VS.NET 2003 until today. Imagine my horror when I received a nasty message from VS saying the debugger failed to start on this server (localhost). The only thing majorly different from my last build was that I have v2.0 of the .Net Framework installed. Turns out the registration of ASP.NET 2.0 stopped the 1.1 debugger from starting because when I ran "aspnet_regiis -u" from the v2.0 framework folder to uninstall ASP.NET 2.0, the debugger started working again!
It seems a little strange that the two won’t work together so maybe there is a way to have them co-exist on the same dev. machine that I don’t know about. If anyone reading this does know, please leave a comment!
