Windows 7: Just starting to learn how to Debug

Just starting to learn how to Debug

Hi everyone!

Under the advice of CarlTR6 I went to Captain Debugger, and downloaded the winsdk_web file.

When I went to start the install I hit the following warning. (See attachment)
when I go to: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=187668 it turns into this:Download .NET Framework

My question is, I already have .NET4 on my machine. Will this do a repair and install the missing components or will it un-install, and then do a complete re-install, one that will satisfy winsdk?

Is there anything else I need to look out for?

Steve

Hello there, Anak!

Question: do you have .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile or .NET Framework 4.0? because there's 2 different downloads in Microsoft's site

Download details: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 (Standalone Installer)
Download details: Microsoft .NET Framework 4 Client Profile (Standalone Installer)

Check that out and it'll probably solve your problem

Good question!

According to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features, I have Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 Client Profile.

So that would lead me to believe that I would need to go to your second link, and let it do its thing, right?
Then go back, and try the winsdk_web install.

I also looked in C:\ , and have:
C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft.NET\RedistList
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\v3.1

I added the SQL Folder because I'm not sure if it also has something to do with the Debugging Tool.

Exactly! Install the .NET Framework 4 from the second link i posted, after installation, try to install the "winsdk_web install" and see if the problem is solved

I'm 99% sure that it'll work since you only have the .NET Framework 4 Client Profile installed, not the .NET Framework 4, thus, the error about not having the needed files for the SDK to install.

Please, report back

Well.... I downloaded the file from the second link and it offered me two options, repair or un-install. I picked the first for a repair let it do its thing, did a reboot then tried the winsdk_web install again.

The same setup note popped up, and I thought, what? So I re-read the message again carefully, and the yolk's on me .

winsdk needs the full version of .NET frame4, not the Client so I need to download from your first link, and then try winsdk again.

Not sure when I'll get back, been busy with snow removal, helpin' the DW, and neighbors.
25°F -2°C dropping to 8°F -12°C tonight.

How's the weather in Venezuela?

Okay!

I have the full version of .NET4 installed and started with the winsdk install, but when it came to what all I wanted to install I was not sure what I really needed for just doing debugging.

(See attachments) I had to do two pix so you could see the whole list.

At the present time I have no plans for getting involved with:
  • Windows Native Code Development or
  • .NET Development
In the Common Utilities Block,
I can see installing the Debugging tools for Windows, and maybe the other three.

In the second pix, the Redistributable Packages block it is asking to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010.

I already have (See third attachment) C++ installed, albeit, they are the 2005, and 2008 versions.
Are those versions sufficient for Debugging?

So, again I ask; What do I really need for just doing debugging?

Well, to be completely honest, i know ZERO about Debugging, but i do recommend that you install all the features, i mean.. they got to do something

If i were you, i'd install the whole thing just to be sure.. and to narrow the error margin!

Let me know how it works out

To satisfy my curiosity, would you be offended if I asked for an opinion from some of the regular debugging gurus?

I would personally add all the redist packages, I forget exactly what is under tools but I seem to remember expanding that and changing one or two items. It's been a bit since I did it though.
