Debug - Modules - Symbols loaded in VM

Running VS 2015 Enterprise, Xamarin (Xamarin Android

I've been looking to debug a Xamarin Android project that uses a nuget package we have developed internally and that is currently configured to have its symbols loaded from a private ProGet (nuget server with VS symbol support) server on our network.

This setup works fine for debugging Windows applications - however when debugging a Xamarin Android project we are unable to set breakpoints within the module. Function breakpoints are apparently 'not yet supported' and we cannot step into module code as these methods are greyed-out in the call stack. When reviewing the module whilst debugging (Debug -> Windows -> Modules) the Symbol Status reads "Symbols loaded in VM".



Can anyone clarify if there's any way we can step into or set breakpoints whilst debugging a module we don't have as a project in our solution?

    I have the same problem.
    Could you solve your problem?

    Same problem in VS 2019. All we're trying to do is debug an exception thrown deep in Xamarin.Forms. Seems like this should be easy to step into this code given that the NuGet package includes the PDBs, but we've spent days and are still stuck.
