Debugging D5 design time (package)

I have to debug the initialization of one of my components at design time. I set several breakpoints in the package and runned a second delphi - but delphi does neither stop on the breakpoints nor show me the source code when it stops on a exception. It just stops on exceptions and shows me the CPU window.
What I'm doing wrong?

You have the source in the path ?
you have not checked the optimized dircetive and you have not build it with runtime packages ?

I have the sourcepath (where the *.pas lies) in the environment search path.
I have checked the optimize directive and it is a runtime package. (I'm not debugging a property editor or component editor. I'm debugging the component itself - but at design time.)

ok, I understood that.
Could you try to uncheck the optimize directive ?
Do you have a blue dot in your IDE at the line you set a break point ?
sorry it may sound a bit basic but I cannot imagine you level from here ;) ...

The optimize flag doesn't change anything.  I have set source path for debugger. I have this blue dots - till I run the second Delhpi.exe.

all you have to do is to declare the creation manually... i mean get a var of your type and run the constructor... then set the breakpoints...

try that...

OK, Follow me step by step:

1. First,Create your package.
2. In your package window,right click ,run Options.... command.
  set the Optimization off, All Debugging on. also in Directories/Conditions
page ,Set Search path : $(delphi)\source\vcl. Attenion, correct setting is in
package window. not in the Project|Options....
3. Build All and Install the package.
4. Exit All Delphi IDEs.
5. Find the package file, DBLClick the file to only open it alone.
6. Set Run|Parameters....  Host Application to C:\Program Files\Borland\Delphi5\Bin\delphi32.exe
(Your own correct path).
7. In you package file, you can set the breakpoint.like at  Register, .Create
and so on.
8. Click Run. Then you can debug your package now.

//I had tried successfully. based on Win98/NT+Delphi5+Pack1.

The problem was that delphi clears the reference info flag when you compile the package/project. I suggest that the points belongs to jeurk.
Thanx, aacrg.
