Disable the Just-In-Time Debugger

October 8, 2009

If you’re a programmer and have Visual Studio installed you’re probably annoyed to no end by the option to launch the Just-In-Time debugging program every time something crashes. It may be helpful if it’s your program but when someone else wrote it, it will offer you little. To disable Just-In-Time debugging:


  • Open Visual Studio
  • Click Tools, then Options
  • Select Debugging
  • Select Just-In-Time
  • Uncheck Managed, Native and Script
  • Click OK

One thing to keep in mind is that since this action performs a registry modification you’ll have to be operating as an Administrator. If using Windows Vista or Windows 7 you’ll have to right click and select Run As Administrator even if you are logged in as an Administrator user.
