This may be a little off-topic…
I am haveing problems debugging an OpenGL application. I have switched computers and now I
am working on a PIV 2.8 GHz with 1024 MB of RAM
and a 9100 IGP graphics card.
After the switch I have problems with the
“ShowWindow” function. The problem manifests itself
both with Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 and Microsoft Visual Studio .NET.
I have tested this even on Nehe’s simple basecode and my computer hangs when trying to
step over the “ShowWindow” function. I have no problems
whatsoever at runtime, just when debugging.
I think my problem is related to the graphics card, as the processor is not used at all and everything
works fine, but the image sent on my monitor freezes. If I press CTRL+ALT+DELETE and Cancel, I get to see “the next frame” of my desktop.
The problem manifests itself only when the window
showed with “ShowWindow” has an OpenGL context attached. If I don’t attach an OpenGL context to the window I have no problem.
I know this has little to do with OpenGL, but maybe you had some problems like mine and you can help me with this.
