Q50410: Entering Double Words at a Prompt Prevents Reloading Program
Article: Q50410 Product(s): See article Version(s): 2.20 2.30 Operating System(s): MS-DOS Keyword(s): ENDUSER| | S_C S_PASCAL H_FORTRAN H_MASM buglist2.30 | mspl13_basic Last Modified: 30-NOV-1989 When using the Enter Double word (ED) command within the CodeView symbolic debugger and allowing the debugger to prompt, you will prevent the debugger from reloading your executable (using the L command). This problem occurs only when you allow the debugger to prompt you for the double word and you enter a double word. This problem can manifest itself in several ways, depending on the version and on other unpredictable circumstances. Symptoms of the problem include the following: 1. Giving the message "No such file/directory" 2. Giving the message "Arg list too long" 3. Generating an internal debugger error 7 Valid workarounds consist of entering words (not double words) at the prompt, or entering double words on the command line (without being prompted). Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with CodeView Version 2.30. We are researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
