Quick Tip: Debugging Smart Device Unit Tests

While browsing MSDN today, I came upon a handy article that I wanted to share.   Titled 'How to: Debug while Running a Smart Device Unit Test', it provides step by step instructions on debugging your test projects.

There is one additional step I would like to add to those listed in the article.

WARNING: Using Remote Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to hard reset your device. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of Remote Registry Editor can be solved. Use Remote Registry Editor at your own risk.

To do this, use the Visual Studio Remote Registry Editor:

b. Set the value of Managed Debugger\AttachEnabled to 0
Delete the Managed Debugger node

Take care!
