XNA Content Pipeline Debugging - A project template that makes it easy to debug the XNA Framework 4.0 Content Pipeline.
Features & Benefits
This project template creates a console application project that is pre-configured to build an XNA Content Project. Just edit the path of the project to debug, and pressF5!
By debugging the console application created by this template, you will debug the XNA Content Pipeline as well as any custom extensions in your pipeline.
The project supports a variety of configurations, allowing you to select the target platform and graphics profile. In addition, you specify the item you want to debug, which restricts the build to that item only. This saves you time as you no longer need to wait for the rest of the content items to rebuild on each iteration.
The project template works in all editions of Visual Studio 2010 that support XNA Game Studio 4.0.
