VC++ 5 Debugging Multi-Processes

We can only find one way to debug a Visual C++ 5 project when multiple processes are being created.  It involves attaching the debug process to the process of interest.  First you cannot move the debug process to any other process, because in order to do that, you must terminate the originally debugged process.  Second all the other processes continue to run while the debugged process is halted for examination.  The question is Are there known ways to debug multiple processes and be able to move the debugger to different processes without terminating them and causing all the other processes to halt???

Did you try running multiple copies of Visual C++ 5? Generally, the idea is to run a copy of the debugger for every process you're debugging. Makes life a whole lot easier.

Yes!  We tried that about two hours after submitting the question.  Sorry.  We are really interested in syncing the various processes when one is stopped for debugging.  Our only homegrown solution is to code a "debug mutex" into every process.  Not the most elegant but workable.  Does anyone know of better solutions or facilities to use?  kradloff@flyaci.com  THANKS!
