I am running iis7 on my windows machine for testing purposes. Now I need to have access to the debugger so when something happens I can walk through it.

Yet when I put debug lines on my site nothing happens. So I am guessing I need more stuff setup to make debugging to work.

Everything is on the same machine. I have iis 7 on the same machine setup and I have Visual studios setup on my machine.

Check that you have debugging enabled in your web.config.

<compilation debug="true" strict="false" explicit="true">

...and I'm assuming you're running it through the debugger in, right?

Ya I have debug set to true and I am in debug mode. But I am typing in my ipaddress to connect to my site. So don't know how that effects things – chobo2 Oct 12 '09 at 1:16
How can you be in debug mode if you're typing in your IP address? Aren't you running this through visual studio with the build in webserver? – ScottE Oct 12 '09 at 13:00
