Description of Problem:
MFA 4.2.5 on VS2012 RC + Win8 RP. When debugging, it takes quite a while to go into the debugging state and you can not use compound expression in Watch window like button.Text, it will become Text and will not evaluate.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Start VS2012 debugging for MFA project, setup a breakpoint, hit the breakpoint
2. Input a compound variable in the Watch window like button.Text
The button.Text becomes just Text and will not evaluate next time the breakpoint is hit
button.Text keeps being button.Text and should always evaluate correctly
How often does this happen?
I'm using the emulator for the debugging
I have checked this issue with XVS 3.11.666 and it works fine at my end .
For now I am closing this issue.
