Hi all,

I'm new to programming using MS Visual Studio. I have installed
VS .net (version 2003) on my PC running Windows Vista. I know there
are "known compatibility issues", but I need to test the program I've
written on an older version of VS, for backward compatibility testing
purposes. The system that will eventually be running the program is an
older system.

When I wrote a simple Hello World program, I can't even debug it. I
get the error message "'devenv.exe' does not contain debugging
information. (No symbols loaded.) Click OK to debug anyway.". When I
clicked OK, it simply opens another instance of VS, not my program.

Is there a way to get around this problem, or is Vista simply not
compatible with this version of VS?

Thank you.
