Hello,

I have a ActiveX COM dll that was created in VB6. I did not create it and I would like to debug it from VS.NET. I have the sourcecode and VB Project files.

Is that possible and how?

Thank you,

Open your VB6 project in the VB6 IDE.
Set breakpoints in your code.
Start your VB6 ActiveX (press F5). I a question pops, select something like "wait for an instance to be created"
Open your C# (or VB.Net application)
Add a reference to your VB6 component.
Start your C# application.

hmmm.....

The C# project is an ASP project and the ActiveX COMponent is a .dll file I reference in the C# project.

How would I debug this?

Thank you,

That does not work, but since there are no other solutions I'll give it to you.

Cheers
