Hi,
step into the MFC source file doesn't work. but when I compile with MFC as static library - it works.
I already tried many pdb tests and more, so it's not 300 points for nothing..
by the way, I need it fast.. or I reinstall the computer. (I tried reinstall the VC..)

thanks,

The MFC source is an optional install in VC++.  Go back to your VC++ installation CD, re-run the installer and choose to install the MFC SOURCE CODE.

After that, you'll be able to debug it.

first, the MFC source code is installed (i just checked),
second, it does step into when i compile with MFC as static library, but as dll it doesn't (i have the correct mfcs42d.pdb in the right directory but sometimes the VC says it's the wrong file, and ask me to look for the right one)

Check http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;q318367 ("BUG: Cannot Step into ATL, CRT, or MFC Source Code During Debugging (Q318367)") - this is for VS7, but the symptoms are the same. Also check whether you have the correct settings under "Tools|Options|Directories"

I had that problem on one computer.  After I applied the latest VC++ Service Pack, the problem went away.

That is the recommended action:  Whenever the solutions provided by the Experts at EE are not good enough, just format your hard disk and/or get a new computer.  That always works for me.
