Debugger doesn't display content of std::strings, and std::wstrings. Quick watch and popup tool tips show "<Error reading characters of string.>". Rebuilding solution doesn't help.

Thanks for reporting this issue. While you weren't able to provide a repro, which usually results in a No Repro resolution, I'm resolving this as Fixed because it's almost certainly a duplicate of which we have already fixed in VC11.

This bug was triggered by changing _ITERATOR_DEBUG_LEVEL (or the settings it superseded, _SECURE_SCL and _HAS_ITERATOR_DEBUGGING) from its default values. I strongly recommend against modifying this setting.

If you have any further questions, feel free to E-mail me at .
