I have MS VC++5.0 Professional...My question is, is there any way to add a watch to a variable.  I went through the online docs that came with it, but from those i got the impression that you have to have the Enterprise Ed in order to get a simple watch.  That seemed odd to me....anyone know if I am just being dense here?
Thanks...

1. Select the variable.
2. Hit Shift-F9.
3. Click the "Add Watch" button.

when I do that, the add watch button is grayed out and the text box says "CXX0017: Error: Symbol "n" not found"

Hmmm. Are you sure your installation is OK? (If it is, just reject my answer - I have no idea what else it could be.)

Whoops, sorry.  I did not mean to propose that as an answer, just a comment.
Sorry.

i am trying to look at a run time variable....

Commented:
Silly questions:
1. Did you compile with debug information?
2. Is your program running?  It should be stopped (e.g., on a breakpoint).
3. Is the 'n' variable in scope?
