Strange problem with wxExecute and CDB.EXE

Post by DebugBSD » Sat Aug 22, 2020 7:59 am

Hi, Good morning!

I'm trying to integrate CDB.exe into my program with wxProcess and wxExecute and I don't understand what's going on. The thing is, when I call wxExecute with cdb.exe as argument, the whole window is freezed. I mean, the windows seems to work propertly but I cannot do anything. I can't click on menus, I can't type on the wxTextCtrl (m_pInTextCtrl), I can't do anything. I get this strange problem just with cdb.exe. I have written a small application called ECHO which responds correctly so I think the problem is related to the CDB and I don't know why. I suppose that the problem is related to the fact that CDB has inserted a breakpoint into the debugee so the application (CDB) has stopped working but I don't understand why if the CDB is running asynchronously, the whole program doesn't respond anymore. Maybe you could unearth some light into this because I don't know what to do.

I have written a small application (See Adjoint) to show the problem.
I haven't included the ECHO source code because I think is not needed but I could include in case you need it.

Sorry, I forget to say that I'm using wxWidgets 3.1.4 on Windows and my IDE is Visual Studio 2019.

Thank you so much in advance and have a nice day!
