We are using VB 2008 Express Edition SP1 in a classroom environment (under Windows 7 64bit, Windows XP 32bit, and Windows 2003 Server under Terminal Services).
Using new (or old projects) we are finding code changes (e.g. changing a variable value) isn't reflected in the debug code.
For example changing the constant "0.5" to "1" in the code line below isn't reflected when the debugger is run
lblVat.Text = Val(lblSubTotal.Text) * 0.5
The projects are stored on a network share (and this locaton has been set to be fully trusted in .Net) - the only change has been a migration to the storage NetApp SAN from a FAS270 to FAS3240 everything else seems to work.

It seems that on the new storage system (running OnTap 8.17) that the files in \obj\debug folder aren't being updated when the debug tool is used.
in partilcular  - <project>.exe and <project>.pdb timestamps aren't changing
Deleting the entire obj folder between debug runs seems to be a workaround.
We've escalated this to our storage vendor and their Microsoft specialists, but i was wondering if anyone in the community has any insight into this? 

Under VS 2012, running clean solution before debug worksaround the issue.

However under the express edition this doesn't seem to work

OKay I accept that the original issue was seen in VB 2008 EE however i do go on to state that the behaviour is reproducable in Visual Studio 2012 Premium hence the submission of the feedback.

I'm disappointed that the issue has been closed outright.
