Mostly it happens when you are not debugging what you think you are debugging. (The exakt version of what you start differs from what is in your IDE (Xcode or Visual Studio)

@Nicolas Goutte Hello Sir,


Thank you for your reply.


Sir, When I am in debug mode and start debugging then breakpoint gets hit but get exception error. Then I change it to release and start debugging then this issue is comming.


Sir, I am using Vectorworks 2021 and Visual

Studio 2017.


Thanks and regards.

Also the problem of releasing a Release target is that the compiler is allow to change the code. So it could happen that the line where you set the breakpoint is not in the generated plug-ins anymore, so that the debugger does not stop.

If you haven’t already, use this as a guide to setting up the IDE: https://developer.vectorworks.net/index.php/SDK:Debugging_SDK_Plugins


You are actually running a release configuration with access to debugging symbols. 

Where in the code did you place the break? Your problem may also be that Vectorworks simply isn’t calling the code containing the break instruction.
