Debugging doesn't work like I want it to

Hi, I did read many suggestions here about the activation of the debugging version of DirectX to get more detailed Error-Messages. So, this seems to work for most of you, but it doesn't for me. I use Delphi and not the more common C and I fear that's the problem. Instead of a message box or something Delphi just opens up the CPU window (a window showing me assembly, register, memory...information). :( Do I need something else? Some debug dlls or so? Please tell me I can use this feature with Delphi somehow. *sniff

You have to run dbmon.exe. You can find it in the utilities directory of your SDK. This will dump all your DX debug information.

Thanks, that works. Delphi still annoys me with the CPU Window, but the dbmon shows me the information I need.

But it is strange that dbmon only delivers information if I start the program out of the Delphi IDE on itself?!?
