This is a reposting of an article Lee Butenhoff originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.
Let’s jump right in. We debug our Visual Studio applications over and over; and attaching to the test environment is among the most important, and time-consuming skills we use. (How many times have I launched GP2010 when I was thinking of GP2013?)
Of course we all simplify our testing by building the dll and pdb files directly in the DynamicsAddins folder (right?). If not, start doing that.
Were that the only thing to learn here, that knowledge alone would be worth the price of admission. But it’s a fairly obvious step, and many of us already send the built dll file to the folder.
