Suddenly can't debug

Using VS2005 SP1. With a debug build I'm no longer able to debug an
application that used to be able to be debugged. I've verified that the pdb
file is in the same location as the exe file but I get the error:

"Debugging information for 'MyApp.exe' cannot be found or does not match. No
symbols loaded."

The time stamp of the pdb file is 1 minute before the time stamp of the exe
so I think the symbols should match. Any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks,
DAM

I think that's the problem. The timestamp ("modified" time) must
be the same for both files. Clearly something went out of sync.
Usually wiping out Debug folder and rebuilding everything helps.

Thanks Alex, that worked. Funny a Clean/Build doesn't cover it.

Thanks again,
DAM
