Coexisting with the Visual Studio 6.0 Debugger
Because of changes in security policies, installing the Visual Studio .NET debugger disables remote debugging by the Visual Studio 6.0 (Visual InterDev 6.0/Visual J++ 6.0) debugger. In other words, a Visual Studio 6.0 user on another machine will not be able to remote debug a program on a machine where Visual Studio .NET has been installed. If you want Visual Studio 6.0 users to have remote debugging access to your machine, you need to grant them permission using one of the following procedures.
To enable remote debugging by Visual Studio 6.0 users (on Windows NT 4 or Windows 2000)
