Can't debug with Ruby in Steel

Two points…
First, how does one actually debug with Ruby in Steel? I can place
breakpoints and run the script but the breakpoints are never set even
though
the code is run. What’s up with that?
Secondly, how does one uninstall it? There’s no obvious uninstall
and,
if it’s not useful, I would like to remove it, please…
Thank you!

First, how does one actually debug with Ruby in Steel?

Breakpoints are available for Ruby programs (not for Rails). You simply
double-click in the margin to set breakpoints. You can set watch
variables
by drag and drop. You must run with the Visual Studio Debugger (F5) for
breakpoints to be met. Breakpoints do not operate when you run without
debugging (Ctrl+F5). This is true of all Visual Studio languages. You
can
also step into and step over when using F5 followed by F10 or F11. Full
debugging and tracing with breakpoints, watches, call stack, locals and
autos will then be available.

breakpoints and run the script but the breakpoints are never set even
though the code is run. What’s up with that?
Secondly, how does one uninstall it? There’s no obvious uninstall and,

You uninstall it using the Control Panel’s Program Add/Remove option and
select Steel. The rest is automatic.

I tried that but those functions are disabled.  All I can do is 

press
Ctrl-2 to run the script. Seriously, they’re disabled and I can’t
invoke
them…
I tried creating a project, in case that had something to do with
anything, but it gives me the error “Value cannot be null. Parameter
name:
type” What does that mean?

Okay, at least I can remove the thing should it fail to ever work.
Thank you...

Strange, I never saw these problems. Steel worked quite well for me on
VS2005.
Which version of VS are you using?

It sounds as though you haven’t installed the file
projectaggregator2.msi.
This is a file supplied by Microsoft and is required for the complete
integration into Visual Studio of a third party languages such as Ruby.
You
will find a copy of this file in the Ruby In Steel installation Zip.Just
double click it to install. In the current beta the installation of this
package has to be done manually but we shall be automating it in future
versions. You may find it useful to follow our installation guide which
you
will find on site at:

I had the same problem and after some hard hours i realized where was
the mistake (mr Collingbourne’s mistake):

in routes.rb i have
map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id’

the breakpoint that was never set was in controller test_controller.rb
when i access from the browser the address localhost:3000/Test/edit/4

Finally I realized that the breakpoint is set if I access
localhost:3000/test/edit/4

(see the diference between the 2 addresses ‘Test’ vs ‘test’)
