Unable to Debug Addin from Visual Basic 2010 Express on Windows7 64bit

Hi everyone!

 

I recently upgraded my system to Windows7 64bit running Solidworks 2012 sp2 64bit.

I can run my addin from Visual Basic 2010 express, but when I go to debug, I get this message:

From what I've read online, this has something to do with the Visual Studio Debugger getting confused at some point or not being properly configured.

 

I tried adding a "sldworks.exe.config" file in the same directory as sldworks.exe as described in this link , which is supposed to help Visual Studio know what .NET Framework version to target during debug, but that didn't seem to help either.

 

I checked and double checked all the settings I could think of, including targeted .NET framework and Debug / Release settings, etc...

So, has anyone out there managed to debug any code attached to solidworks.exe with Visual Basic 2010 express (emulated as 32bit) running on Windows7 64bit with Solidworks 2012 sp2?

 

Thanks in advance!

 

Filipe
