C# Question

Unable to start debugging. The startup project could not be launched. VS2015

I have started a new console project in VS2015. I only have this code :

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;
using SautinSoft;

namespace PdfParser
{
class Program
{
static void Main(string[] args)
{

string path = Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.Desktop);
SautinSoft.PdfFocus f = new PdfFocus();
f.OpenPdf(@"path:\abc.pdf");

if (f.PageCount > 0)
f.ToExcel(@"path:\abc.xls");
}
}
}


When I try to run, I get this :


Unable to start debugging. The startup project could not be launched.
Verify debug settings for the startup project.


How can I fix this? Thanks.

Answer

After upgrading MSVC2015 to Update3, I had the same problem: instead of std::map in the Watch window display as a horrible std::_Tree<std::_Tmap_traits... etc., some plugins started to throw exceptions, some projects was not able to run in debug mode.

All was solved by deleting CurrentSettings.vssettings
