I recently installed CVF on an IBM Thinkpad A30p running Windows XP. I also installed Compaq Array Visualizer. Now when I write a simple FORTRAN program with an array, compile it, run the debugger, and try to visualize the array with Compaq Array Visualizer I get the following error message
! This action cannot be completed because the other
program is busy. Choose 'Switch To' to activate
the busy program and correct the problem.
[Switch To] [Retry] [Cancel]
(but the cancel button is in a light font and not useable.) When I press 'Switch To' it is as if I pressed the "Start" menu button in the lower left hand corner and the error message does not go away. 'Retry' produces the same error message in a moment. Either way, my debugging session is hung, and I need to reboot the machine to start over.
I have CVF Professional Edition v. 6.6 and I have installed the v. 6.6b patches. I have also increased the memory of my Thinkpad to 1GB. Nothing I have done fixes the problem. This happens no matter how small an array I try to visualize, and in any dimension, even 1D. For example
parameter ( n = 2)
integer x(2,2), i,j
do i=1, n
do j=1, n
I had previously been using the same version of CVF on a Windows 2000 platform and didn't experience this problem. I would be grateful for any suggestions as to how to fix the problem, since the ability to use the Array Visualizer in the CVF debugger was the reason I purchased CVF in the first place!

I can't use Array Visualizer with VF in debug mode on XP
