- Ensure that you have compiled the debug version. You can chose this from
the toolbar on my installment, otherwise try Build/Set default configuration.
- Run the mud with Build/Debug/Go (F5), not with Build/Execute yourmud.exe
- When the mud crashes and VC displays the disassembly, choose View/Call
stack (Alt+7) to bring up the call stack. Here you can see which function
in your mud that caused the problem. Double-click this function and VC will
take you to the line that crashed the mud.

I'm using Visual C++ 4.2, so the menu commands might be slightly different
in your version.

Good luck!
