Is Remote Debugging of VC++ .NET to 98 Remote Host Reliable?

Is Remote Debugging of VC++ .NET to 98 Remote Host Reliable?

Post by Junho Ry » Tue, 14 Jun 2005 14:45:27


Hello,
Our team still use VC++ 6.0.

Because we have an ActiveX project which should support Windows 98.
And VC++ .NET is not able to be installed on 98 machine.

However, we are considering use of VC++ .NET to enjoy its superb debug
functionality.

What I want to know is,
"Are there any issues or known problems of using remote debugging to 98
machine in the real world?"
or
"Is there any technical knowledge can make me confident to tell our team to
use VC++ .NET?"

Reply from someone who is already doing it stably will also be a great help.

Have a nice day.

Remote debugging is (not surprisingly) sluggish compared to debugging
on the same machine.
On Win9x machines, you have to install the RD components on the
machine.
Getting it set up for the secure mode is (probably) difficult - I say
that because each time I've tried, I've eventually given up and
resorted to the non-secure mode - which I could do because so far I've
only needed to debug native code.


You'll have to try it yourself to be sure it's suitable for you.


I use it every day to debug native code in virtual machines.
