Long delays when stepping through code

Long delays when stepping through code

When running code encounters a breakpoint it usually takes about 5 seconds for before the application is responsive and the watch list is updated. This also occurs when stepping through code one line at a time - which makes this feature unusable from a practical point of view. Is there any way to reduce this delay?

This also occurs when the watch list is empty. I read on one of these forums that installing Microsoft Script Debugger might make a difference but it did not seem to do so - maybe it was not configured correctly?

RE: Long delays when stepping through code

Hi Jonathan,

This behavior is normal. Stepping through code lines takes some time.

Sometimes, closing the Locals and Watch List panels while debugging helps increase the speed.
