Breakpoints not being hit in JetBrains Rider?

I am trying to set a breakpoint in JetBrains Rider, but the debugger isn't breaking.

I know for sure the application should reach the code I'm trying to break on, as changing string literals appears in the program.

I have completely reinstalled all my JetBrains programs (wiping settings). I've also tried every answer in this thread: break point is not hitting while debugging, with no luck.

This bug doesn't occur in Visual Studio, but does occur with any project in Rider.

It also doesn't happen on my other copy of Rider that I use on my other PC.

I appreciate any help, thanks!

Why are my breakpoints not hitting?

If a source file has changed and the source no longer matches the code you're debugging, the debugger won't set breakpoints in the code by default. Normally, this problem happens when a source file is changed, but the source code wasn't rebuilt. To fix this issue, rebuild the project.

How do you set a breakpoint in rider?

Line breakpoints Press F9 . In the main menu, choose Run | Toggle Line Breakpoint.

Why breakpoints are not working in Eclipse?

The debugger stops at main because a temporary breakpoint was set there. You don't see it because it evaporates as soon as it is hit. So, Eclipse IS setting breakpoints that work.

How do I activate breakpoints?

To set a breakpoint in source code: Click in the far left margin next to a line of code. You can also select the line and press F9, select Debug > Toggle Breakpoint, or right-click and select Breakpoint > Insert breakpoint.

One more caveat: I started using Rider again after an absence, I was pressing the "play" (triangle) button rather than the button with a picture of a bug.
