How to stop Debugger?

Hi!

I have Visual Studio installed on my Win2000 system.

Every time when some error occurs, I get an option to stop the process that generated the error, or to start the debugger ( Visual C++ ).

How do I prevent this option to occur? I just want to stop the application without any questions asked.

Try this:

#If DEBUG Then
   Stop
#Else
   ' Don't stop
#End If

Where should I put this?

I'm not developing anything in VC++.

I'm talking about general run-time errors. For example. Windows Explorer sometimes reports an error saying it is not able to execute some Java Script lines, and then
opens Visual C++ with the line which generated an error highlighted.

I have examined the link you have posted, and disabled Just-In-Time debugging.
I'll have to wait for some errors to see if it is disabled properly.

I ment internet explorer, but it doesn't matter which app generated an error.

Oh - I understand now...
Try this:

From IE - Click Tools/Internet Options
Advanced Tab
Check both
 Disable script debugging check box
 Display a notification about every script error check box
under the Browsing section...

This behaviour is controlled by the 'AeDebug' registry key. See

I have deleted this key, it now ends an app without questions asked

Thanks for disabling java script errors.

Some app was calling some java script about 10 times every morning which was generating errors every time. This is the main reason why I wanted to disable the debugger.
Now I don't even get the error messages, Thanks!
