Using a Debugger

As part of Visual Studio .NET, two debuggers are available: DbgClr and Devenv. DbgClr is almost identical to the debugger associated with the Visual Studio Development Environment except that it provides a read-only view of a particular project. With DbgClr, it is not possible to use edit-and-continue, and it is not possible to modify the source, recompile, and run from the same tool like it is with the debugger associated with Visual Studio .NET (devenv.exe). These differences aside, the functionality is just about the same for each of the tools. DbgClr might be faster than Devenv simply because not as much overhead is associated with DbgClr. DbgClr doesn't have a compiler, editor, and so on built in like Devenv does.
