Read the following article entitled "INFO: Choosing the Debugger That the
System Will Spawn" in the Microsoft Knowlege Base. Hope it helps.

Hi John, thanks for the link but...
I'm asking what I'm sure is a newbie question, and I'm probably not asking
it very well. :-)
I want to get a stack trace for a particular exception that is getting
thrown by the STL, due to some bit of poor programming on my part... :-)
I can catch the exception to get its text "pos2 > len2" (just try to track
However, I thought that by leaving the exception uncaught that I'd get an
opportunity to debug it, but I don't. The program just writes "abnormal
program termination" out to the DOS command line (it's a DOS command line
program)... and that's it. It doesn't generate the usual OK/Cancel/Debugger
message box which allows you to spawn a debugger. (I've had lots of those
types of errors too, and have no problem using the debugger against those.
It's just this STL exception that's got my stuck.)
I've read everything I can get my hands on, and I thought from what I've
read that any uncaught exception should generate the application fault to
put me into that OK/Cancel/Debugger message box.
(PS: I did manage to find and fix this problem, manually brute-force trial
and error style. Took forever. I just want to make sure that I know how to
debug similar problems in the future.)
