Responding to search-strings

I’ve just looked at the logs of this webserver and – under the search strings used to find this page, found this: <blockquote>delphi cannot debug anymore</blockquote>It happens that tough I have not written about this particular topic, I certainly have some hints to this fellow searcher (although, they possibly come to late now):

  • Have you compiled your project with debug information? (Project/Options/Compiler).
  • Have you rebuilt your project after changing above settings?
  • Do your files by any chance have Unix-Lineendings? If so, the debugger won’t work
  • Have you restarted your PC? Sometimes this works too.

I’m quite sure there are more things that could make the debugger unusable, but unfortunatly I can’t currently think of any more of them. Maybe becuase just the ones listed above are common enough that I remeber them? Delphi is very nice, but sometimes it can be so unstable
