SYMPTOMS

When you disable the just-in-time (JIT) debugging options in Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003, the JIT debugging options are also disabled in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. Additionally, you may receive the following error message:
Another debugger has registered itself as the jit debugger. To repair, enable JIT or run repair.
Note This issue occurs when you have both Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 installed on the same computer.

CAUSE

This issue occurs because both Visual Studio .NET 2003 and Visual Studio 2005 use the same JIT debugging system.

  1. Start Visual Studio 2005.
  2. On the Tools menu, click Options.
  3. In the Options dialog box, double-click Debugging, and then click Just-In-Time.
  4. Make sure that the following options are enabled:
    • Managed
    • Native
    • Script
  5. Click OK to close the Options dialog box.

STATUS

This behavior is by design.
