Hi,

Visual Studio 6 is completely unsupported on Vista+ operating systems. There are literally dozens of incompatibilities so I do not know what is causing your IDE to hang. If I had to guess... I would guess that the operating system is waiting on an I/O request to complete. Probably because the VC6 IDE is calling DeviceIOControl after or during the termination/detachment of the debugger resulting in a race condition. In these hangs... TerminateProcess does not succeed because the system is infinitely waiting on an I/O cancellation. The I/O cancellation will never succeed because the process was partially deleted and no longer has any allocated address space (which contained the information required for I/O cancellation!).

Anyway it doesn't relly matter why it is hanging... you should be running VC6 in XP Mode[^] on Vista+ operating systems. If you don't want to run the VC6 IDE in XP mode... don't worry your not alone. I also do not run it in XP mode. Instead I use the IDE for writing code and then I use WinDbg[^] for debugging the code.

If the application you are building will be used on Vista+ operating systems... you should consider upgrading your compiler so you can take advantage of /GS stack cookies[^] , /SAFESEH[^] and integrity levels.

Best Wishes,
-David Delaune
