I'm trying to debug calls I make from the interactive console. There is a built-in
command that should do what I want, and when I submit it the IDE does indeed enter debug mode. But I am unable to execute any code: Anything I enter (aside from the special $ commands) is met with this error:
Code can only be executed while stopped in debugger.
Hitting the pause button causes the pause button to grey out but doesn't seem to have any other effect. The IDE window still says "(Running)" and I still get the error.
It doesn't matter whether or not I have any projects open when I use
I expected the debug session to start up paused, allowing me to type into the Python Debug Interactive window without any fuss.
Edit: this is with PTVS 2.0 Integrated Shell on Win7 x64 and Python 3.3.3 x64
