Dear Fortran Friends!
For a couple of years I am experiencing the same problem with the debugger in Developer Studio (Digital/Compaq Visual Studio) and Visual Studio 2003 and 2005 (Intel Visual Fortran v8, v9):
When stepping through a Fortran app in the debugger, sometimes VS "hangs" and the task manager shows me that VSis consuming almost 100% of CPU time, but VS doesn't respond anymore to my actions. Sometimes VS reports an error that it cannot return from an "internal operation".
I had a customer who told me that he experienced the same and that he could step further in his app after waiting for more than 10 minutes. I never had that much patience. So I always killed VS and started anew.
However today,within the last hour I had to kill and re-start VS more than 10 times, and now I am fed up.
Does anyone has some help for me (I am still using VS2005 w/SP1 and IVF 9.1.3375.2005)?
Does the problem still exist with IVF v10.0 or IVF v10.1?
Does it help to change to VS2008?
By the way, a couple of customers are reportingthe same VS/debug behaviour, I wonder whether this has ever been discussed here.
