I've been looking on the net for posts on debugging Ninjascripts using VS 2012 Express

Can this be done? I tried NinjaTrader support and their standard response is this is only available from the professional versions of Visual Studio.

I've seen workarounds using VS 2008 and VS 2010 Express. Is there one for VS 2012 (Express)?

If none, should I revert to VS 2008 or VS 2010 Express?

Thanks in advance

I believe that's true (only available in the professional version). I use Sharp Develop. It's an open source C# ide.

sorry I use VS2012 pro.
but you can take a look at stackexchange
debugging - Are there any stand-alone C#/.NET Debuggers? - Stack Overflow

remember to compile your indies in debug mode to be able to do the line breaking and step by step stuff...

Sorry, I use VS 2012 Ultimate only. I've used SharpDevelop a long time ago, it's pretty capable, it might do the trick.
