    de-bugging information

    I am using Microsoft Visual C++ and cannot get the debugger to work, it says '...does not contain any debugging information'.

    And yes the 'generate debug info' box has been ticked, the debugger will just not work.

    I have it in de-bug mode. At the moment I am thinking it is a hardware problem but after uninstalling my video card, sound card and modem it doesn't make any differance.

    The program de-bugs on other computers but not mine (tried it on 3 others) so I'm now starting to think that I have accidently changed one of the default settings somewhere, somehow.

    >>> it is a hardware problem

    Doubt that.

    If you are sure you are doing a debug build, try doing a Build->Clean then a Build->Rebuild All.

    Code:

    Tried that.

    I'm at the stage that if this problem isn't fixed by next friday i'm buying a new computer! Obviously I'll be testing the de-bugger on the computer before I buy it
