If SQL debugging does not work, check the event log on the machine that is running SQL Server.

To locate SQL debugging errors in the event log

  1. On the server machine, click Start, point to Settings, and click Control Panel.

  2. In Control Panel, double-click the Administrative Tools folder.

  3. In the Administrative Tools folder, double-click Event Viewer.

  4. In the Event Viewer, look for errors whose source is listed as the SQL Server instance name, MSSQLSERVER, MSSQL$LEGACY, MSSQL$LEGACYIS, or, for SQL Server 2000, SQLDebugging98.

  5. Double-click the event to read the Description in the Event Properties dialog box.
