I have installed the Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK) but now want to use Dr Watson as my debugger. How can I do this? 

This capability is controlled by the following Registry key on Windows NT:

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

This key contains the following entries:


You may want to make a copy of these before changing them. To use the DRWTSN32 debugger you should set Auto to 1 and Debugger to DRWTSN32 -p %ld -e %ld -g

You may also restore Dr. Watson as the default debugger by entering the command

drwtsn32 -i

The i switch causes the necessary changes to be made to the Registry.

You may also request Microsoft Developer Studio as the default debugger by

1. Running Microsoft Developer Studio

2. From the Tools menu, select Options

3. Select the Debug tab

4. Enable Just-in-time debugging and click on the OK button.
