Help stepping intoVB6.Dll registered in Com+ From VS 2005 on windows 7

Posted on 2009-12-19
Last Modified: 2013-11-26
I've been struggling with this for 2 days now. Just got a new machine with windows 7 professional on it. We have a number of classic asp applications that utilize business logic from a vb6 dll. I can debug and set breakpoints in the classic asp scripts but I can't step into the vb6 ide in order to debug my com object.
I've installed vs2005 and the sp upgrade for vista and windows 7
I've installed vb6 and service pack 6
I setup VB ASP Debugging under complus and gave the everyone group permissions
I modified my project properties to user both and Native debugging options.
I attach the debugger to both the w3wp.exe and vb6.exe but I'm unable to step into the vb6 ide.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think VB6 IDE is not supported in W7 (only custom support).
