Entrian Attach 1.4.3: Trim executable filenames

Saturday, April 1st, 2017 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce Entrian Attach 1.4.3, which fixes one small but important bug:

  • If you accidentally include leading or trailing spaces in your executable filenames, they are now stripped.  Accidentally setting the thing to attach to <space>myapp.exe no longer leaves you wondering why nothing works.  Thanks, Honza.

You can download this new release from the download page or the gallery.


Entrian Attach 1.4.2: Attach to only one instance

Saturday, December 31st, 2016 by Richie Hindle

I’m very pleased to announce Entrian Attach 1.4.2, which introduces one new feature:

  • You can now configure Entrian Attach to only attach to one instance of your executable, and to ignore any subsequent processes, via “Attach at process start when… I’m not already debugging its exe”.  Thanks, Honza.

…and fixes one bug:

  • The child debugging rules are now obeyed when attaching to existing processes via Attach Now, as well as when new processes start.  Thanks, Jools.

You can download this new release from the download page or the gallery.


Entrian Attach 1.4.1: Visual Studio 2017

Friday, December 23rd, 2016 by Richie Hindle

I’m very pleased to announce Entrian Attach 1.4.1:

  • Now supports Visual Studio 2017.
  • If you add the EntrianAttachEnableDisable command to a menu or toolbar, it is now checked (highlighted, or ‘latched’ as Visual Studio calls it) when Entrian Attach is enabled.

You can download the new release from the download page or the gallery.


Entrian Attach 1.3.4: Bugfix for console control events

Sunday, November 27th, 2016 by Richie Hindle

I’m happy to announce Entrian Attach 1.3.4, with two bugfixes:

  • Console control events no longer cause the shim process (which sits between a debuggee and its parent) to exit.  Previously, if the parent checked whether the debuggee was still alive, and the debuggee’s console had been sent a console control event which it had ignored, the parent would think that the debuggee had died because the shim had died.  Now, only the death of the debuggee will cause the shim to die.  Thanks, Jools.
  • You can no longer resize the Conditions dialog smaller than its default size, making the OK and Cancel buttons disappear behind the other controls.  Thanks, Jools.

You can download the new release from the download page or the gallery.

Entrian Attach 1.3.3: Bugfixes, new hotkey

Monday, December 21st, 2015 by Richie Hindle

Announcing the release of Entrian Attach 1.3.3:

  • Added a keystroke to enable/disable Entrian Attach without needing to launch the Configuration dialog – Ctrl+E, Ctrl+E by default (thanks, Sergei).
  • The options for w3wp.exe and iisexpress.exe are now correctly available when you specify a full path to the executable rather than just the name (thanks, Goran).
  • Running multiple Visual Studios, each configured to attach to the same executable using different conditions, now works properly (thanks, Jason).

You can download Entrian Attach 1.3.3 from the Download page.


New: Entrian Inline Watch displays live variable values inline in your code as you debug

Saturday, August 8th, 2015 by Richie Hindle

I’m really excited to announce a new product from Entrian Solutions: Entrian Inline Watch.

It displays the values of variables inline in your source code, updated live as you step through your code:

You can see the live values right there in the source, rather than having to hover over them with the mouse, or find them in the Watch windows.

As soon as you land in a function, or at a breakpoint, you can see the values of your function parameters and variables instantly.

It makes debugging almost pleasant.  You and your team need it.  :-)

Entrian Inline Watch works with Visual Studio 2010, 2012, 2013 or 2015; any edition except Express.

It works with both Managed and Native debugging; in C++, C#, and VB.

It’s free during the Beta period, with builds timing out after a few weeks.  Once it’s out of Beta it will cost $29 per developer, or $24 with a volume discount.

Download it from the download page, read the fine manual and the FAQ, and let me know what you think!  (And bear in mind it’s in Beta, and therefore does not carry a no-weirdness guarantee.)


Entrian Attach 1.3.1: Supports Visual Studio 2015, plus Wildcards

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015 by Richie Hindle

I’m pleased to announce the release of Entrian Attach 1.3.1:

  • Now supports Visual Studio 2015.
  • You can now specify a wildcard pattern like C:\MyDir\*.exe (thanks, Jason).
  • Fixed a bug with attaching to processes in non-English versions of Visual Studio (thanks, Bruno).

You can download Entrian Attach 1.3.1 from the Download page.

Entrian Attach 1.2.3: Fix for attaching the Visual Studio debugger to Java processes

Thursday, May 15th, 2014 by Richie Hindle

I’ve just released Entrian Attach 1.2.3, which fixes two bugs:

  • Entrian Attach would fail to attach your debugger to Java processes with enormously long command lines.  Thanks, Ivo and Steven.
  • Where you have more than one rule for the same executable, all rules are now consistently considered when that executable starts.  Previously, if one rule matched but another didn’t, the attach might not happen. Thanks, Jason.

The Entrian Attach download page is the place to go for the upgrade.
