Hi,

I'm using a release VS 2005 which has been stable for months. The only
installs I've done lately are the new WinFX goodies, beta 2 flavor.

But I have not used them yet.

Suddenly, I can no longer run in debug mode. This happens with WinForm based
programs I was working as recently as two days ago, and it happens if I
create a new WinForms application and put one button on the form and try
launching in debug mode.

I tried single-stepping into the programs from the Debug menu :  same modal
error dialog thrown :

"Error while trying to run project: unable to start debugging.

The binding handle is invalid."

thanks for your help, Bill Woodruff
