Hi experts!

I have a VB6 application, which are very complex and have BIG problem to locate where error occurs. Problem is that error occurs once time in 2-5 days and it very hard to detect the code which produce problem. Also I start to write a error handle on possible places, but after 2 weeks still I do not find the problem code ..no matter I have 10 years programming experience with Vb6.

So my question is this: do I have directive to VB6 or other way to change the way VB6 show unhandled error? Primary I need except the message to see and SOURCE (class, procedure or function), I mean to show err. Source. How to do this?

You''ll need to add error handlers everywhere - and they need to be good ones, i.e., 'fitted' with the name of the procedure, and even better - with line numbers (yup, that's right, line numbers!).

There are several commercial tools for doing this (Google is your friend); some also have trial versions that work on a limited set of modules/forms.  If your project is big, it's most likely got too many for those trials though.
