Using DNN 4.0.2, VWD Express
I want to step through the Events module as a learning excercise. I downloaded and unzipped the source version of DNN, then used Host Modules page to upload "New" module events_3.1.zip downloaded from the Events project. All seemed to work ok, and I now
have the events.ascx and the events.ascx.vb in the desktopmodules\events folder.
But when I try to set a breakpoint in events.ascx.vb (after rebuilding the site and starting with F5) it says "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document"
Breakpoints in default.aspx work fine.
I note that if I change events.ascx (say by adding a test label) the change takes place, but if I create a deliberate error in events.ascx.vb, the project still compiles clean - this codebehind file is obviously being ignored.
Can anyone enlighten me please?

Replying to myself...
I suddenly realised that the module had unpacked itself in .NET 1.1 format, whereas it needs to be in .NET 2.0 format!!
I could probably get it to work by tinkering around with app_code folders, and namespaces, but it is probably not worth it.
I wish the Downloads page for the various projects (Events, Links etc) had made it clear that the source (and presumably the install) zips only work with .NET 1.1
