How to: Enable Client-Side Script Debugging The Visual Studio debugger provides you with a comprehensive debugging environment for testing and correcting errors in your Web document scripts. You can use the Visual Studio debugger to test scripts written in Microsoft Visual Basic Scripting Edition (VBScript) and Microsoft JScript.

At my job on the C# IDE QA team I've learned some useful things about debugging in Visual Studio, which I'd like to summarize in this post. Although the screenshots were made using Visual Studio 2008 SP1, this pretty much applies to other versions of VS as well. Rich debugging support When you develop your C# application and hit F5, the target process (your program) gets started, and then the Visual Studio process attaches the debugger to the process where your code is running. This way, you can break into the debugger and VS will provide you with all sorts of rich debugging support - current statement highlighting, call stack, watches, locals, immediate window, Edit-and-Continue and so on. More importantly, if your application throws an exception or crashes, the debugger will intercept that and provide your with all the information about the exception.

You've to manually stop debugging and then close the package. No way that I could find to look at just the errors/ warnings from the log. I Hate SSIS - Ayende @ Wiki
Download details: Consolas Font Pack Overview Consolas is intended for use in programming environments and other circumstances where a monospaced font is specified. All characters have the same width, like old typewriters, making it a good choice for personal and business correspondence. Optimizing the font specifically for ClearType allowed a design with proportions closer to normal text than traditional monospaced fonts like Courier. This allows for more comfortable reading of extended text on-screen.
