Debugging in Visual Studio suddenly stops working

May 4th, 2011

I suddenly got this error message when trying to debug in VS 2008:
Unable to start debugging on the web server.The Microsoft Visual Studio Remote Debugging Monitor has been closed on the remote machine.

The debugging had worked fine until this point, and I hadn’t changed any code, configuration, database values, or underwear.

What solved it was… wait for it… restarting the browser. I don’t care enough to find out why, but I felt this secret has to come out.
