What to do when you are unable to debug a Silverlight project
In this tip, you will see steps to help you if you are not able to debug a Silverlight project.

Today, I was looking at one of the client's Silverlight projects. I was able to debug anything but Silverlight code!

I did a lot of R&D on the internet and tried various tricks suggested. But only this thing worked for me:

When you add a Silverlight project to an ASP.NET solution, you create two projects…

  1. The startup project (interface starter)
  2. The interface itself


  1. Right click on the startup project (SilverlightWeb — the one with default.aspx in it )…
  2. Click on ‘Property Pages’.
  3. Open ‘Start Options’ Tab.
  4. Enable Silverlight Debugger.
  5. OK.

If step 3 is missing, then:

  1. There must be 'Silverlight Applications' tab. Open it.
  2. Click Add button, you will get a window to add the Silverlight projects.
  3. Add Silverlight interface.
  4. Enable Silverlight Debugging in options.
  5. Add it. Save.
