Hi! Thank you so much for the answer. Platform is Windows 7 x64. 
I checked all the settings you said but unfortunately nothing 

I recorded a short video with my attempts to debug a program. 
There are two projects (VisualD and D/C++) with each type and one 
pure Visual C++ project. Debugging works only in Visual C++ as I 
mentioned before.!Ar5BCn3roz_ahSoJMf5pVZTdHYGY

I will be glad if you see it and find anything that can help me.
