I actually saw this exact thread yesterday and everything is enabled as per the write up (Win 10 BTW).
And yeah, the VS debug window is where I am looking too. About the only things I ever see are if I have forgotten to release an interface. But prior to this when I was running Windows 8, I used to get a whole gamut of warnings and advice during runtime (for things like mismatched shader inputs etc..).
When you click in "Edit List" button, you will be able to enter your executable, which in turn will un-gray all those options. DarkRonin, you need to experiment more on your own.
Your second sentence is a bit presumptuous and offensive.
