I am unable to get "Edit and continue" to work in Visual Studio. It fails with the message "Changes are not allowed if the project wasn't built when debugging started".
I am debugging an ASP.Net Core (1.1.0) Web API app using .NET Framework 4.6.1 and Entity Framework 6.1.3.
I am using Visual Studio 2015 Enterprise Update 3 with IIS Express.
I have Edit and Continue enabled in Tools > Options > Degugging > Enable Edit and Continue.
I have IntelliTrace set to IntelliTrace events only in Tools > Options > IntelliTrace > General. Disabling IntelliTrace did not fix the problem.
I also added COMPLUS_FORCEENC=1 to system environment variables.
Any other ideas?
Edit and Continue doesn't appear to be supported yet for .Net Core, at least in VS2015 U3. I've run into the exact same issue and while I can't find any concrete references for it, there seem to be hints in a number of places. Here are a couple of links that may support this claim:
I have yet to try VS2017 RC, perhaps the support is there for it there. If you've found anything else since posting I'd be delighted to hear about it.
