In the process of upgrading my workstation to use VS2019, and all went smoothly with VGDB except I can’t find the windows that are listed in the view menu dropdown in VS2017 (e.g. memory explorer). I haven’t extensively checked past compiling/debugging
Apologies, I had the incorrect project selected as startup in VS2019 -.-
While searching for the solution to this, I did however find that in neither version can I find a way to open the general disassembly view without stepping into a libc function (e.g. sprintf) during debugging? This is with an embedded project
The reason is the Visual Studio design. The regular disassembly window is a part of the debugging GUI and only appears during debug sessions.
To view the disassembly outside a debug session, please use the disassembly view in VisualGDB’s embedded memory explorer. It works independently from Visual Studio’s disassembly interfaces and was added exactly for this use case.
