I have run into a problem with MS Visual C++ 4.0 lately running under NT 4.0.  When I try debugging (console apps), the debugger bypasses all of my breakpoints and the program runs normally, but returns with the message "program has halted with exit code <hex number>."  This occurs for code that I have successfully debugged in the past.  This does not occur on a different machine running the same code.  I have resinstalled the compiler and that has not helped.  I am in desparate need of a solution

Maybe the program fails before main(). Do you have any global or
static variables?

The program does not have any global or static variables.  There are a number of macros and preprocessor commands and that's it.  Note that I can no longer debug programs which I have in the past(I have not made changes to these programs since).
