    Exception Handling has disappeared

    Installed Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition, and everything was awesome for a couple of weeks until exception handling seems to have disappeared while running in debug mode. When an exception error occurs, the program's window closes, returning me to the code without a clue as to what the problem is.

    I know it's nothing in the code itself, since exception handling still works properly on an installation on another computer.

    I tried repairing, uninstalling, reinstalling, logging in as a different user, resetting environment settings to default -- nothing seems to make a difference. The editing suite is kind of useless without any hints of the exceptions.

    Anyone else seen this behavior?

    Hi SJB.

    Not sure if you have tried this, but it could possibly be a Profile problem. Some advanced debugging options dissapear in VS when creating applications. Here is a link to a good blog post I used when mine dissapeared.

    Missing menu options in Visual Studio 2005? - Blog

    Basically, go to tools -> import and export settings, then import a new developement profile.


    EDIT: Sorry did not realise this post was so old.
