      The CLR Managed Debugger sample illustrates how to build a managed debugger using the included managed wrappers for the CLR Debugging Services APIs (ICorDebug).
  • Supported Operating System

    Windows 2000, Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, Windows XP

      To build and run the CLR Managed Debugger (mdbg) sample you will need to have the .NET Framework 2.0 SDK (release build – version 2.0.50727) installed on your system. This is included with Visual Studio 2005 and the Visual Studio Express Editions. If you do not have Visual Studio 2005, you can download and install Visual C# 2005 Express Edition to build the sample. In both Visual Studio 2005 and Visual C# 2005 Express Edition, you can build mdbg using the solution file included with the mdbg source.

      Important: Make sure you have the latest service pack and critical updates for the version of Windows that you are running. To find recent security updates, visit Microsoft Update.
