Setting up a debugging environment

Once a module is deployed, how is it debugged? How can you trace step by step through the module code or set a breakpoint?

In this recipe, we will configure the development tool to create a robust testing environment by combining the DNN source code and the module source code as a single solution. Then we can set breakpoints and go step by step through both the module and DNN code.

Note that if you have already used this recipe to create a test environment you can't rebuild the environment by running the recipe again. If you need to reinstall your development environment it is necessary to completely remove the environment before using this recipe to reinstall it.
