No debugger info in VC++6

I have been working on an application that I have been porting around to various computers.  For some reason I cannot get it to include debugging information.  I continually get the dialog that no debugging information is available for my executable.  Under the project settings in the C/C++ tab I have the optimizations set to default.  This is the only place I notice one could specify Disable (Debug) but I certainly don't have it set that way.  I really need to be able to debug.  What am I missing?

Are you building the DEBUG build?  That's usually the best approach.

If you are having release build and you want to enable debug info for that. you need to do the following things
in C/C++ tab
1. from Optimization combo box select Disable (debug)
2. from debug info combo box select "Program Database"

in Link tab
1. Check the "Generate Debug info" check box.

Now build the project and this will allow you to debug

Make sure you select "Debug" under "Build->Set Active Configuration..."  This will ensure you are building the Debug executable and not the Release build.
