Description PJ 2012-06-27 15:44:11 UTC
Trying to debug an ASP.Net application on Windows 64bit results in the following message:

Debugger Error: The operation failed because debuggee and debugger are on incompatible platforms. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80131C30)

From mhutch:
"On Windows we use the .NET debugger, not the Mono debugger (unless you
install Mono and set that as your target runtime). We didn't yet
implement support for 64-bit debugging for the .NET debugger. And
setting the platform target to x86 won't work for ASP.NET projects,
unfortunately. Since we don't have an ETA on fixing it, we should
probably have the .NET debugger disable itself for unsupported target
