How to Install JIT Debugger

By Chappy Sinclair

With JIT debugger enabled, you will be able to examine an error inside of Visual Studios if there is an error with the program itself. It will give you the option of manually correcting the error, or it will prompt you to run debug mode. It can be very useful if your Visual Studios experience is not very stable.

Things You'll Need

  • Visual Studio 2008

Step 1

Open the Tools menu inside of Visual Studio. Select "Options."

Step 2

Choose the debugging folder. Select "Just In Time."

Step 3

Select "Enable Just in Time." Choose between "Managed," "Native" or "Script."

Step 4

Click "OK." JIT debugger is now installed and enabled.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can enable JIT debugger to launch when a program, running outside Visual Studio, encounters a fatal error.
