Microsoft Script Debugger

What is Microsoft Script Debugger?

A component of Internet Information Server (IIS) version 4 that enables easy debugging of Active Server Pages (ASP) applications, regardless of the script language they are written in. You can use Microsoft Script Debugger to debug both client-side and server-side scripts written using Microsoft Visual Basic, Scripting Edition (VBScript); Jscript; REXX; or Perl.

You can perform the following tasks:

  • View the source code of the script being debugged and execute the script line by line.
  • Set breakpoints, view and modify variables and property values, and view the stack.
  • Switch between different execution scripts.

You can debug only scripts that are running on the local Web server, not on a remote server.


Do not use Script Debugger on a production system because it interrupts the execution of the script if an error occurs. Copy your scripts to a test system and debug them from there.
