Debugging using Visual Studio/Silverfrost
I am trying to debug my FORTRAN model engine using the Silverfrost FTN95 compiler integrated with Visual Studio Pro, however I find I can not step into my engine code as was demonstrated with VS/Intel on the OpenWEB training course.  Has anyone else tried this?

I have tried this and also see the same problem. I notice that, for the silverfrost compilor options I have used, no pdb file is created for the engine dll. Without this the Microsoft compilor wont have any debug information to use, and hence I am not suprised that the stepping in failed.
I have looked in the silverfrost help and not found any information on creating pdb files. Most of the help info appears to be on using their own silverfrost debugger. Maybe we will have to attach to their debugger to make this work. I will try and find time to look into this sometime.
If anyone has experience in silverfrost debugging, would be gald of your assistance.
