Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

Control what happens when an unhandled exception occurs

By default, when an unhandled exception occurs in a managed application, a dialog box appears that asks you whether you want to debug the application with one of the debuggers that are listed in a listbox. (Notice that Windows Forms applications display a different dialog box.)

The behavior of the .NET framework in this case can be controlled by changing the DbgJITDebugLaunchSetting value following registry key:

This value can be assigned one of the following three values: 0 - a simple message box appears and asks the end user whether to Continue or to Attach a debugger. In the former cases a stack dump is produced and the application terminates. In the latter case the debugger listed in the DbgManagedDebugger registry key is lauched.

1 - the application is terminated and a stack dump is produced.

2 - the debugger listed in the DbgManagedDebugger registry key is lauched.
