The Professional Edition allows you to debug command execution with the Visual Studio debugger.

1. Check the Include debug information option and add the System.Diagnostics.Debugger.Launch() call where you want to start command debugging:

Prepare code for debugging

2. Run the command as usual and select a Visual Studio debugger when the Visual Studio Just-In-Time Debugger dialog opens:

Select debugger

3. Now you can step through your code, inspect variables and add standard Visual Studio breakpoints:


If a debugger is already attached to your Visual Studio instance where the command is executing, you can use Debugger.Break() instead of Debugger.Launch() to break execution from code. Or you can call the following universal method:

static private void BP()
	if (System.Diagnostics.Debugger.IsAttached)
