There are four ways to start a target program and have Thread Validator collect data from it.
•Launch your program in a specified directory, with as many command line arguments as you want
•Inject Thread Validator into an already running program
•Wait until a specific program starts to run before attaching to it - e.g. for programs started as an OLE server
•Link a library (provided) to your program which will cause Thread Validator to be started whenever the program is started
For your application to be processed for thread data, each module to be monitored must have a PDB file with debug data, or a MAP file with line number data.
Use the Debug DLLs dialog to see whether debug information was not found for any modules, and check the Diagnostics tab for failure messages.
