Upgrade to Visual Sudio 2015 and now can't hit break points in debuging

I have a multi-project solution that I was building in Visual Studio 2013 and it was working fine but now that I have upgraded to Visual Studio 2015 I can no longer hit break points in debug mode for any project exect the main project selected as the Startup project in the Project Properties page. I used to be able to click on the other projects and just choose Debug -> Start New Instance. I am getting the error

The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document.
I have tried a lot of things found on Google including:


  • Clean/Rebuild

  • Delete the OBJ and BIN folder form the projects

  • Did VS repair

  • Rebooted

  • Uninstalled/Reinstalled

  • Confirmed Define DEBUG constraint is enabled for Properties -> Build

  • Confirmed Optimize Code is unchecked for Properties -> Build

  • Confirmed Properties -> Build => Platform target was set to Any CPU for all projects

  • Tried running VS using "Run as Administrator"

  • Deleted all the files in /AppData/Local/Temp/Temporary ASP.Net Files/

  • Made sure Debug -> Attack to Process -> Select had "Automatically determine the type of code to debug" was selected

  • Made sure the Properties -> Web -> Debuggerts had ASP.Net checked (my properties has ASP.NEt and Enable Edit and Continue Checked, Natvie Code SQL Server and Silverlight unchecked)

  • Confirmed Target framework in Properties -> Application was set to the same version (4.6) as in the Web.Config/App.Config files.



So what am I missing here? Why can I no longer debug the other projects?

Answer

I never figured out what happened but I ended up building a whole new project and just importing the files into it and everything works now.
