    Hey Roel.

    For some reason Visual Studio 2010 is not loading the debug symbols so my breakpoints are never hit.

    You have any idea what this could be?

    Same issue. VS 2010 do not spot at breakpoint in test method. Never have such issue with NUnit.

    Click on the controller action method you want to debug and then select Test –> Debug —> Tests in Curent Context.

    If you have a break point in your test method then it will be hit.
