you probably missed:
"Type g in the command window (or choose Debug>Go)."

after attaching.


PS: If using windows XP, you need to install PowerShell (the windows
management stuff) via the optional updates if you also want the
debugger to be able to download the source-files.
Not necessary for providing a backtrace though.
(Windows update → optional update → make sure to install the .NET
framework, as powershell/windows management stuff depend on it, then
the "Windows Management Framework" including the powershell should be
listed as available update)
