    Stepping through code - can't get past strcat()

    When I step through my code, as soon as I get to the strcat function, a box pops up and asks me for the location of STRCAT.ASM

    I tried to change the folder to the Intel folder (in my C++ path) but it tells me the path cannot be changed...

    What's this all about?

    Oh, after I acknowledge the messagebox, the debugger crashes and kicks me back to the IDE (at least it doesn't crash C++ all together).

    It could just be that you're stepping into the function instead of over the function in debug mode.

    Yep, that was exactly it... I kept hitting the "Step Into" button.
