My program has a window-activation problem. Stepping through the program with the debugger interferes with my ability to reproduce the problem because my program keeps losing focus. Is there any way to avoid this?

If you have a second computer, use remote debugging. You can operate your program on the remote computer while you run the debugger on the host. For more information, see How to: Select a Remote Computer.
