  • Set breakpoint in a place where you create this object
  • Right mouse button and "Add Watch"
  • In Watch window, right mouse button on your object and select "Make Object ID"
  • You will see something like {1#}. 1# is your object ID
  • Now, wherever you break your code you can add in watch window 1# and you will see your object

Load xsd file from assembly

First, you need to add xsd file to resource by changing build action to "Embedded Resource".
To access this file from code write something like:

XmlSchemaSet schemas = new XmlSchemaSet();
Assembly assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
Stream stream = assembly.GetManifestResourceStream("Namespace.ServiceDescription.xsd");
schemas.Add("", XmlReader.Create(new StreamReader(stream)));

WCF, IIS, Keyset does not exist

- Error: Keyset does not exist error when I try to test WCF project with X509 security.

  1. Check if WCF support is installed for IIS:
  2. If you are using certificate, check if application pool have access permissions for private key. To provide access permissions do:
    1. Find IIS application pool identity
    2. Find private key file name for certificate (FindPrivateKey.exe):
    3. Add read permissions for IIS application pool identity (cacls.exe) or just open windows explorer and set permissions

Test run pending trouble

Sometimes when I start unit test from visual studio all test are in pending phase and no test will run.
Open task manager find proses named as VSTestHost.exe and kill it. After that try to start tests again.
It works for me.

And here is macro to do that for you

Sub KillDeadTestProcess()
Dim objProcess As System.Diagnostics.Process
For Each objProcess In System.Diagnostics.Process.GetProcesses()
If (objProcess.ProcessName = "VSTestHost") Then
End If
End Sub

Create certificate

To create certificate for use in WCF for example you can use Visual Studio command line tool makecert and pvk2pfx
