I have setup Visual Studiio 6.0 service pack 3 on a Windows 2000 Professional (workstation) and when I attempt to connect to a running process the process list is always empty, even if I select "display systems processes".
Does this feature simply not work on Windows 2000?

I don't have 2000, but what happens if you try it using the (poorly documented) command line option?

msdev /p <process ID>

Note that if you want to put in a hexadecimal process ID (as displayed by the Process Viewer tool that comes with Visual Studio) you need to stick an 0x in front of the ID, like:

msdev /p 0xfff9d2dd

I found a workaround. By bringing up the task list I can "go to Process" then "debug process" from there.

Thanks.
