Debugging an ISAPI app in C++ Builder 6

I'm trying to get the Borland C++ Builder 6 debugger working with an ISAPI application (DLL) running on IIS 5.1, on MS Windows 2000 Professional.  There IS an article describing how to do so at the Borland/CodeGear website ( http://dn.codegear.com/article/23024 ) ...and I have followed those instructions.

But...

When I try to launch my application, using IIS as a process and the host of my DLL, the program IMMEDIATELY returns back to the IDE, as if it had exited normally.  There are no error messages and nothing appears in the Windows Event Log.

Anyone with experience in setting this up?

Trouble shooting

If you get an error about: "A required privilege is not held by the client." then you probably haven't done step 3, or you are trying to debug in a scripts directory that hasn't had step 3 done on it. Or, you have not rebooted at some point.

If the debugger starts and stops right away, then you probably have inetinfo.exe running. Run the Task Manager and look for inetinfo.exe running. Try to kill it. If you can't it is currently running as a service. Try shutting it down in the services. If it is stuck on "Starting" the service, then run IISService.reg and reboot. After rebooting, stop the service. Then run IISProcess.reg and try debugging.

When releasing your ISAPI DLL application, be sure to undo what you did in these steps to not hinder performance on your DLL.

OK, I feel really dumb now.  It turns out that Inetinfo.exe WAS still running.  I'm completely confused as to HOW it could have been running, since the service was stopped, but there it was in the Task List.  After I killed it there, C++ Builder stopped right on my breakpoint.

Thanks for the help for a "Duh" moment. :-)

Sorry I didn't respond earlier...
I checked out the article but I didn't get so far down...
I checked a bit with some other sources and only yesterday I saw troubleshooting...
