    debugging in VC++

    i'm using vc++ 2005.

    for some reason, my locals, autos, and watch lists aren't working. the locals and autos lists are empty and the debugger won't recognize variables i add to watch lists. i had some issues with breakpoints working properly, so i think i might have changed a setting that affected these tools. where should i look to fix the problem?

    thanks.

    Are you building your code in debug mode? I often get the issues you describe if I try to use the debugger in release mode.
