I've just discovered something really useful... or, maybe I'm totally stupid and I just discovered the obvious ... you tell me.
You can use the VC++ debugger to debug VB5 ActiveXs DLLs while they're running from inetinfo.exe, setting breakpoints, examining variables, etc., all with the full power of the VC++ debugging environment and a live connection to IIS as it's running.
OK ... if you knew this, read no further because I'm about to embarrass myself. But, if this is news, it may be the saviour for those really tough-to-find ActiveX DLL bugs which you just can't figure out.
This came as a total revelation to me, and one of the absolutely coolest things since… well, never mind!
