One Last Gotcha for debugging Web Service Projects with Silverlight

Project / Properties / Startup Options

All of a sudden, I could no longer debug my project. After poking around for a while, I discovered that if I went to the webserver projects property tab, startup options I had to select "Silverlight Project". I don’t remember unchecking this, but none the less, there you go.

I’m of course referring to my article of a couple days ago at:

Follow me:


  1. I think you’re using VS 2008, because in 2010 i have it checked by default

  2. I dont see a problem… it is an easy thing for me.

  3. 🙂 This little problem blocks your entire work.. Thanks for showing. Now we know what to do if we will have the same problem..

  4. Thanks for the tip, I was struggling with this for quite a while; I don’t think I turned this off either.. a bug perhaps??
