Exceptions not being trapped by Debugger in VS 2013


I've installed the FePy tools package (2.0) for Visual Studio 2013 and have encountered a minor bug which doesn't occur in VS2012:

If an exception is thrown during program execution the debugger should put the cursor straight in the line in the appropriate script and display a popup giving details of the exception; instead nothing happens other than the traceback report in the console window. Debugging otherwise works brilliantly.

It works fine in VS 2012 though.

What exception is being thrown?

By default, we don't trap all of them, since that leads to a lot of false positives. See our exceptions documentation for more info on this.

Thanks for that. I've read the link and PTVS works fine for VS2012 and VS2013
(I was trapping the IndexError exception which is one of the few that is not trapped by default in VS2013)
