When I was running NT 3.51, and a debug compiled program crashed, I could click on a cancel button and then the Visual C++ debugger was launched so that I could debug the code.

Since I upgraded to NT 4.0, the Windbg debugger is launched instead. How can I change this back to the Visual C++ debugger?

The purist would say reinstall Visual C++ to ensure you get the correct settings, howver, the short answer is to set the registry entry

MyComputer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft \WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\AeDebug

to your debugging program.

It worked, thanks! I changed it to "D:\MSDEV\bin\msdev.exe -p %ld -e %ld", and then it worked perfectly.
