Hi,

I've seen similar problems answered on the net, but could not find a solution.
I am programming with Visual Studio. Recently I have installed it on a new computer, and now it behaves differently. Before, whenever I had an unhandled exception, it would be thrown all the way up to Program.cs, where the IDE would catch it and show it to me in a window stating the message and the place in the code where it originated. That was very comfortable.
Now the Just-in-Time debugger window pops up and informs me that I have an unhandled exception. Then it asks me whether I would like to use Visual Studio to debug it. If I say no, the program breaks and I can't see the exception. If I say yes, the JiT complains that another program (obviously the Studio I use to program) is attached to the process and it cannot debug.
This is annoying. I tried to disable JiT from the Tools->Options menu, but then when there is an excpetion the program just complains that there is no JiT and breaks.

does anyone have an idea?

much obliged

If you run it under the debugger from the IDE, the JIT debugger won't kick in. That way, you'll get all of your exceptions handed to you.

Thanks for the reply. Of course I am running it from the IDE debugger, or I wouldn't expect it to catch my exceptions. But still, the JIT debugger intercepts them.
Or maybe I need to answer here...
