VS.NET 2003 debugger watch window won't drill down into my classes

The VS.NET 2003 debugger watch window doesn't drill down into my classes. When I click on the plus sign next to a name, the plus sign goes away and nothing else happens. The projects are set to generate symbols, and the output window says these are being loaded. Thanks for the help!
If this is happening with any class, you may have a partially botched installation. Do a repair install and it should clear up. If you're seeing this on a single class, it generally means that the first property in the class is causing an exception when the debugger is calling it to display the data. Normally, you would see something like "<unable to display data>" next to the property but in some rare cases some classes won't display.
