  • Microsoft Visual InterDev 6.0 Standard Edition, when used with:
    • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0
    • Microsoft Windows 2000 Standard Edition

When you try to stop the Visual InterDev 6.0 debugger using the Stop button, Visual InterDev becomes unresponsive (hangs) for a long period of time (approximately 5 minutes). After the time-out, the Visual InterDev debugger stops and returns to normal state.


When you stop the Visual InterDev debugger using the Stop button, Visual InterDev installs a COM message filter. Occasionally, when the time spent on a call is too long, the call is cancelled. In COM/RPC on Windows NT 4.0, calls to release cannot be cancelled, which causes the delay in stopping the debugger.


To work around this problem, detach the debugger rather than using the Stop button:

From the Debug menu, select Detach All Processes.
