i guess, it's project property which is the main check point.

If you jump into Toolkit functions, you are inside Creo and the debug symbol tables for Creo are not provided by PTC (probably to avoid possibility of reverse engineering).

Maybe this is what you observe?

I'am trying to debug interactive dll.
From documentation:

Debugging an interactive DLL

1) Start PTC Creo Parametric with the DLL registered and loaded

2) Use the debugger to attach to the process xtop.exe.

3) Set break points in the callback functions that you wish to debug.

may be something wrong with my make file ?

in the User Guide of API, there is instruction for the debug.

1, compile change in VS /Od /Z7

right click the project and in the settings

2, link change in VS /debug (regardless of /debug:full, i did not find it now)

as #1

3, enable VS debug in environment variable ALLOW_MS_DEBUG  set true

my computer right click, property, and advanced settings , advanced tab, environment

after the settings

run creo

start the dll

open taskmanager, ctrl+alt+del

in the processes, right click and choose    debug

make a right choice in the dialog following, and it opens VS

set the break point in VS

do some operations with the dll,

and debugging

yes, i can share some code, with base callback functions, but without code they actually do, when i prepare solution, I'll send you on e-mail, thanks. P.S. I can't share whole code because of company secure politics.
