Visual Basic 6.0 debugger issue

P: 2
I have an application that gathers data from a Digital Pulse Processor and it seems to work fine. The problem is I cannot use the VB debugger because when I try to it fails with a RunTime Error 53, File Not found (path).

This error occurs during compile when I hit RUN - Start with FULL COMPILE, on the exact line when my code calls the first function contained within a C++ .DLL library that is in my code.

Is this normal ? When you call functions from a C++ .DLL library, you cannot use the debugger ? I have Visual Studio 6.0 full edition. Is there some way to use that instead ?

Hiya Partner!

I googled your error and found this:

See if that works, if not please ask more questions and stay tuned...

Here's one from Micorsoft:

Try Google results if still no go:

Excuse the rush, just passing through:-)

Good luck!

Well, I've read most of those links already...You see the application does compile and make correctly. If runs and runs just fine, so we know for sure the " FILE NOT FOUND " error is misleading, to say the least. The file is where the path specifies, and the C++ .DLL functions inside that file work just fine.

The problem is I can't use the debugger, because I can't execute RUN from the menu...I can ONLY use MAKE from the file menu to build the project.

Is there an alternative debugger for when you build a VB 6.0 project that MUST use C++ called functions from a .DLL ?
