    Visual C++ 6.0 Debugs my computer lol

    If any of you have VC++ installed you can probly relate to this. Say a program, juno in this case, crashes on your computer. Windows spits some errors at you, then VC++ fires up its debugger and attempts to let you fix the problem, how can i stop it from debugging every $$$$ing thing lol?

    Click no.
    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    it never gives me a chance, i have to click ok to the errors and it does it automatically, there has to be a setting.

    Try set the system to prompt before launching the debugger.

    ::assume WinNT system::

    Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

    Look for the "Auto" value........if it is "1", then that's your problem found - set it to "0"....this will give you a standard prompt when you crash....

    Of course (for safety) you will export the key before making this change!

    Same thing happens to me RoD, except I get the automated exception window so I get to choose to debug it or not. Maybe it's a service or something.

    Hmm, maybe delete the default debugging utility. I'd back up that key incase if that messes up debugging your own code.
