I just installed VS 2015 Update 2 and now my F10 Debugger key is not working. It looks like it is mapped to F5 (continue) because the debugger stops at the correct breakbpoint but then F10 continues execution.

I looked at Tools Options Environment Keyboard and it seems that the F10 key assignment is correct. What am I doing wrong?

Perhaps the Update 2 of Visual Studio has a problem.

However, I suspect that you are switching between Debug and Release compiles. The Release compile has no debug information, so it just continues execution as you described.

This has happened to myself a couple times. Perhaps this will help you find the solution.
