RS4: debugging .Net application.

I have Vista, VS.Net 2008 and RS4 installed. When I debug an application F10 does not let me step into a method. But if I use the .Net IDE step into button, it does. What I'm not sure is if it is a problem with the way I've configured .Net or if it's a problem with something in RS4. I guess I'll blame RS4 first as I know I'll get an answer from someone far quicker if I try to blame Microsoft! Whatever the outcome, I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me what I might have misconfigured or perhaps need to do.

F11 is the command to step into a method invocation. F10 will step over it.

Cheers,
Mike

Mike, the odd thing is with my machine is that F10/F11 do absolutely nothing. F9 toggles the breakpoint on and off, but F10 and F11 do not move through the code. It's almost as if those keys are 'dead' if that makes sense. I never had this problem before buying a new laptop with Vista preinstalled. All I've added is .Net 2008 and RS4. Just to reiterate if I use the IDE debug toolbar then normal debugging works as expected. Only the keyboard seems jinxed for some reason.

Peter,

Just a stupid question: are F10 and F11 assigned to the corresponding
commands (you may check it in the Tools|Options|Keyboard)

Sergey, they certainly appear to be assigned as I can see F10/F11 are assigned in the dialog. I wonder if Vista is 'seeing' my keyboard differently to the way XP did?

Hello,

Could you please verify, that this keys are not assigned to something other
in a narrow scope?
On the Keyboard page in Tools/Options, put caret into shortcut box and hit
F10, then expand combo box which shows which commands are bound to shortcut.

Ilya, the more I try things the more I am convinced it is the keyboard. For example, F5 works ok as does F9 and F12.

In the Tools -> Options -> Keyboard I can see that F10 is mapped to Debug.StepOver but neither F10 or F11 actually do anything. I'm running the same .Net 2008 and RS4 at work and those function keys work ok. I'm going to buy a less complicated keyboard in a few days as the one I have is somewhat over the top. It's a rather messy looking Logitech multimedia keyboard. It's pain in the ass.

Hello Peter,

I'd advice take a keyboard from someone nearby and check this issues, before
spending money on something else :) Did you try rebooting, or trying these
keys in different application, like MS Word?

Ilya, I tried assigning F10 in my other editor, UltraEdit. Same problem. I can assign F9 or F12 but not F10 or F11. Those two keys do really seem to be dead.

Peter, glad to hear ReSharper is not guilty ;)

Ilya,

I of course assumed that RS was innocent of all charges! It was much easier to blame RS as you guys actually listen to your customers. That's not something you can always say about Microsoft. :-D
