Did you read through the manual section debugging externally launched code? The steps are basically: - Make sure the WINGHOME value is set right in wingdbstub.py - Copy wingdbstub.py over to where your COM server code is - Add an 'import wingdbstub' in a place that gets executed before the code you want to debug - Turn on passive listen in Wing from the Debug / Network Mode menu - Set a breakpoint in Wing IDE - Launch the COM server code... it should stop at the breakpoint or at least the debug status area in the top of Wing's windows should change to "Debugger: Program Running" I'm assuming you're running Wing and the debug process on the same machine. If not, there are additional steps needed. You can diagnose problems by setting kSilent=0 in wingdbstub.py and by starting Wing from the command line with console_wing.exe (which will outputs extra debug info). The output is pretty verbose but if you send it to email@example.com we can likely figure out where the problem lies. Hope that helps... please let us know if not. Thanks, - Stephan
