An additional idea to make this useful: specify a local setting for project build order so that my project B that gets instantiated from project A gets compiled when I start project A.
Merged with the second part of:
Debug on process launch
Setup Visual Studio to automatically attach (and break at entry point) to any externally launched processes by process name. Similarly, setup Visual Studio to automatically attach (and break at entry point) to any processes spawned by the program currently being debugged (recursively).

That's what I talking about.

Make it optional - sometimes you want to attach, sometimes you don't want to. A project's setting would probably be the best.
+1. This is a very useful feature.
Vladimir Nikulin commented
Yes, this would definitely be useful.

This feature would help me right now.
There are workarounds but why make it harder when it could be so easy?
Wang Feng commented
Yes, this is useful feature.
