A while ago, I talked about Microsoft releasing the source code for the .NET Framework in order for you to debug it through Visual Studio 2008. Just a few days ago, it was finally released. Shawn Burke has an excellent and detailed post explaining how to set this up and also has a trouble shooting section.

Currently, the following libraries have been released:

  • NET Base Class Libraries (including System, System.CodeDom, System.Collections, System.ComponentModel, System.Diagnostics, System.Drawing, System.Globalization, System.IO, System.Net, System.Reflection, System.Runtime, System.Security, System.Text, System.Threading, etc).
  • ASP.NET (System.Web, System.Web.Extensions)
  • Windows Forms (System.Windows.Forms)
  • Windows Presentation Foundation (System.Windows)
  • ADO.NET and XML (System.Data and System.Xml)

I have set this up on one of my development systems and it works well. I'll like it better when I can download all of the symbols in one shot, but this works for now.
