I have problems debugging the application in powerbuilder 2021. I have the IDE installed on two different PCs, on one PC I can debug without problems, on the other PC I can't. Both have the same configuration and are running on windows 10. When I try to debug the instance that doesn't work it just crashes the application without any message. It doesn't matter where in the code it is, just "step in" and the app dies.

Hi Menna;

  1. Make sure that each IDE instance is using the same runtime build number
  2. When you copy the App, make sure that you delete the OPT file (debugging information).

PS: I do this all the time between W10 machines, W11 machines and W10=>W11 & vise-versa with no problems!


Regards ... Chris

Have you tried to clear all the debug break points before starting the debug?

Once you have done that, set only one stop and see if that works.

Additionally, try clearing the "Watch" tab in the debugger. Having a lot of expressions in there can crash the debugger.
