VB6 Immediate window disappears when program is run.

For some reason, in my copy of vb6, the immediate window disappears whenever I try and run a program in the IDE, then reappears when the program finishes. I used to be able to see the window all the time the program was running.

Ctrl-G doesn't help, as the problem only occurs when the program is running.

It has only started doing it recently, I think after I closed the down from the IDE. Now I can't seem to get it back the way it was. Anyone else had this problem?

You need to break your program, in order to output something on the Immediate Window. Try press the " || " button on the menu, then do what you want in the Immediate Window.
