Debugging in Win98

P: n/a
Hi,

I need to debug my app. under Windows 98. Although VS.net can't be installed
it I have been able to install both Framework 1.1 and the SDK.

Can I debug the app. in VS.net remotely from an XPSP2 system over a peer to
peer network ?

Although both machines can see each other fine, DCOM seems to jump in when I
try to connect to the Win98 machine in Debug>Processes>Name and tells me the
Win98 machine wasn't found. Is DCOM really telling me this can only be done
in Domain based networking ?

Thanks for any help

Hi,

I can easily install NET SDK under Windows 98. When the NET installer
starts it first unpack setup files.
Don't close the installer and copy these files into the other directory and
then run setup.exe.

Hello Janusz,

Thanks for replying but as I said I have been able to install the SDK -
that's not the problem.

The problem is I can't debug my application over a peer to peer network
because I can't get my XP machine to recognise the Win98 machine - when I go
Debug>Processes>Name in VS.net and enter the name of the Win98 machine I get
a "machine not found" message. My network is working fine otherwise - both
machines can see each other, swap files etc.

I think this is a DCOM problem and I want this confirmed - and if possible a
workaround (that does not require me to install 2003 server !) so I can
debug the Win98 machine remotely.

Regards
Jon
