- Open Visual Studio command prompt
- Navigate to your Chromium’s
srcfolder from that CLI
- Open Visual Studio to debug your Chromium executable by typing the following
devenv /DEBUGEXE "outYourBuildFolderchrome.exe"
F5to start debugging your source code.
Tip: If you want to start debugging by stopping at the entry point, you can right click that project and choose
Step into from the context menu.
You can use
all.sln to edit the source code and yes you have to compile it again for the changes to take effect.
