    Re: does not contain debug information. Press OK to Continue

    I think you have to provide more information to get help. Easiest is to pack and attach your project. Don't forget to delete all intermediate files (debug/release folders, .suo, .ncb) before packing.
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.

    > Generate Debug Info = Yes
    > Generate Program Database File = filepath.pdb

    many thanks for your suggestions but I think the problem lies elsewhere.

    In fact I was able to compile and link the application without any
    errors.

    My problem is I am getting a message "does not contain debug
    information. Press OK to Continue" when I try to debug the application
    with or without breakpoints.

    There's not much it could be. I doubt many of us are on 6.0 any more so giving you exact steps will be tough, but as cilu pointed out, you likely don't have your build settings correct.

    Also, un-install the ancient compiler and get yourself a modern one. Things have changed a lot since 1996...

    What? You mean VC6 isn't the latest compiler?
