Debug In DIAdem

Go to solution

Hi all,


I'm having trouble getting the debugger to work for DIAdem 2015. In theory I should be able to download microsoft script debugger but when I follow the links in older help topics there I get redirected to the microsoft general download page. Is there something else I can download to use as a debugger? I don't know much at all about computer software so please keep explanations as simple as possible.

Hi Phillip,


The link only opens in browser, and the symbols show up as question marks...

Hi Artemis,


Please remove the "*.txt" suffix from the file name and then double-click the file in Windows Explorer.  This is an installer which needs to be run to add the script debugger to the operating system.

Hello Brad,


I am having the same issue as the original poster. I have downloaded and installed the Mircosoft script debugger per your instructions in this post but the debug options are still greyed out in the DIAdem script toolbar. Did I miss something? The DIAdem Advanced Training Exercises say that the debug options should be available after downloading the script debugger and then restarting the program- this did not work for me. Any suggestions?


Thanks in advance

Hi wils,


What DIAdem version are you using?  Do you have Visual Studio installed on that same computer?

Hi Brad,


I tried doing what you stated above but I was not able to get the debugger to download. When I go through the setup I get a "copy error." This happens when it tries to copy the file ScrptDbg.inf file. Have you seen this before or know of how this can be fixed. Part of me thinks that it may be result of the restrictions that my company laptop has but I wasn't completely sure. Also I'm using Diadem 2015 64bit and I do not have Visual Studio.

Thanks for this. Finally, I got the debugger via your link.


Please, modify the article in the KB regarding the installation of the debugger, to indicate that no links to Microsoft are no longer working, and give this download of scd10en.exe file directly. 


It will save a lot of time to others who, like me, had to facethe broken links at Microsoft ...
