# Debugging example plugins

Hi everybody

How to debug a plugin - I have ran Example Plugin from both within the repository and in the download (in debug)everything runs in the Editor but the break point is not hit. The .pdb file and .dll are in the C:\Program Files\OpenTAP\Packages\SDK\Examples\bin\Debug\

As I understand it the Editor will run in above folder so should find the .pdb ?

Is there additional steps or file moving that needs doing ?

Where should we create our custom plugins ? in Packages or the opentap folder ?
Many regards Andy

Hi Andy,

This depends a bit on how you attach the debugger. Which .sln file do you load to do this?

Hi Rolf
I’m opening Examples.sln in C:\Program Files\OpenTAP\Packages\SDK\Examples

Thanks Andy
