How do you get the binding to debug?

I am now in the VS/Maui screwup that does not debug. I get an error message but since it should stop when there is an error and it does not I am at a loss. I get the "System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: 'Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.'" which is the most useless error that VS has ever shown as it does not have anything to help isolate the error as it does not show where the error occurs. There has to be some debug option that I do not have set as there is no way a company can release a product for debugging that does not debug. I am using dot.net 7.0 and Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2022 (64-bit) - Current Version 17.7.7. I know there is a later version of VS but that version does not create usable "release" versions of the app.

    debugging Maui is complex, because VS uses the native debugger remotely. the debug image is mix of the compiled dotnet code, native code, and native libraries. if you need lower level debugging, just use the native debugger directly, rather than VS remote execution of the debugger. as .net 7 support ends this November, you probably should upgrade.
