I have a Run/Debug Configuration with 8 projects of which only 4 are started


I have a Run/Debug Configuration with 8 projects. When I hit Debug with a compound configuration selected (which contains all of the 8 projects), only 4 projects are started. The remaining ones stay under the 'Configured' node in the Services tree.

This means I have to right-click the remaining projects and click Debug for each of them, which is rather tedious.

I've checked all individual configurations but they all seem fine. I haven't been able to discern any specific factors that may cause some of the projects to start and others not. Both categories have .NET Launch Settings Profiles and .NET Projects in them.

Is there a limit to the maximum amount of projects to start or something? I've been experiencing this issue for a while now and now and then more or less than 4 projects will start. That doesn't sound like a limit actually.


Hello Sandor,

There should not such limit. Could you please clarify if any of these projects depend on each other and should be started in any specific order? If not, then could you please right-click on the Solution | Advanced Build | Rebuild with diagnostics and send me the resulting log. And please also enable Trace scenario for Run (Help | Trace scenarios | Run), reproduce the issue and collect logs (Help | Compress logs) and send me the resulting log bundle as well. You can attach the logs here or create a new issue on YT: https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/newIssue. Thank you in advance!


Thank you for your reply. To answer your questions, my projects don't depend on each other. They do not need to be started in a specific order as well.

While creating a YT issue - as you suggested - I saw that someone else has encountered the same problem (https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RIDER-32299) and that JB has acknowledged the issue can be reproduced. Therefore, I didn't submit my issue.
