 'Break Execution' won't allow me to debug message box.


The debug symbols on the VC6 CD would not have been for WindowsXP.  Please
install these from
http://www.*-*-*.com/ #Windows%20symbol...
ages.  Also read the article
http://www.*-*-*.com/ ;en-us;Q304989 to see how
these should be moved so that the de{*filter*} can find these symbols,
