Debugging SharePoint code when using PowerShell

10 02 2010

Note to self and anyone else who is interested –

When trying to debug code – a FeatureReceiver in my case with Visual Studio when you are using PowerShell to actually kick off the event you need to ‘powershell.exe’ process in addition to the normal w3wp worker processes. If you don’t do this then your breakpoints won’t get hit it seems.

Hope this helps someone!
