Description Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2011-12-24 02:03:16 UTC
The debugger evaluator cannot display values for compiler-generated fields/locals since their names contain the chars $<> which are not permitted in C#, and the evaluator uses a C# parser.

This makes it ~impossible to debug compiler-generated constructs that have not been reverse engineered.
