VB6 uses VB2005 debugger. Help!

I uninstalled and reinstalled VB6. When I have an unhandled exception in
VB6, it uses the VB2005 Pro debugger. There is no way to leave the VB2005
debugger without ending up at the desktop.

How can I make VB6 do it's own debugging so it shows me the statement that
causes the exception (like it always has in the past).

Anyone have the answer?

Sounds like VB6 is calling a library function somewhere (i.e. not in your
VB6 code) and the function is failing and running the 2005 debugger.
I've had VB6, VB2003 and VB2005 installed on the same machines for a while
now, and never known VB6 code to call the 2003 or 2005 debugger.

What references are your VB6 code using?
