My MS Visual C++ compilers debugger locks up my system. This occures at any point that the application would normally crash. To prove this I intentionally accessed an element of an array out of bounds without running in debug. App crashes and exits. I ran again, but this time in debug mode. Lock up. I'm forced to reboot the computer using the power button (Ctrl-Alt-Del doesnt respond).
This only occures in one specific application. A Direct3D 8 app. Any other application will respond normally to the debugger and all is well.
Has anyone ever had this problem or have any idea why this could be occuring? What could cause the debugger to lock up?
