"unable to start debugging" "repair the debugger" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had to reinstall Visual Studio 2003 on my laptop.

    First problem was that the reinstall gets stuck at Step2 and does not move to step 3 to install the MSDN documentation. Everytime, I go to setup.exe, step 2 comes back over and over again despite several reinstalls.

    Second, since the reinstall, I haven’t been able to run the debugger. I get: "unable to start debugging"
    "The debugger is not properly installed. Run the setup to install or repair the debugger".

    When I run the debuggerdiagnostics, I get the following;

    C:\>debuggerdiagnostics
    Begin 'CheckMDMImage()'
    mdm.exe: version '7.10.3077' with hash '{6C7D4C7B-F93B89D1-3215A9D4-119CD266-117DF782}'.

    Begin 'CoCreateMachineDebugManager(&spMachine)'

    Only error I see is:
    Could not find 'coloader80.dll' in the registry - 0x80070002

    How do I resolve this issue and re-enable the debugger?
