How to debug script in an iX Developer project.

Post by Ron L. »

You will need to install Visual Studio 2010 or Visual C# 2010 Express.

iX Developer must be configured to target the correct Visual Studio executable in order for the debugging to work. You can configure the target executable under "iX" -> "Options" -> "Script Debugger options" -> "Debugger".

Press the debug button to validate the project and start the external debugger with a generated project file.

If you get a compile error about .NET Framework 4.0 not being installed, you can change the project settings to target the ".NET Framework 3.5" and re-compile.

Start debugging. If you get an exception you can try pressing F5 to continue.

If you continue getting exceptions and are unable to debug your project, you can change your workspace to a "Panel Type" of PC and debug. You may want to do this after making a copy of your project.
