Hi,

You should check that your firewall is not blocking the port used by the
JVM debug mechanism...

I have sometimes had problems debugging, even locally, when a firewall or
VPN interfered. I guess that the IDE connects to the VM being debugged by
opening a port and sometimes the firewall doesn't like that.

So, since Vista seems to be paranoid schizophrenic, maybe the Vista firewall
is causing you problems. You might want to play with its settings.

Hmm, it's interesting that the output of 'java' (in your earlier post) said
1.6.0_11, but javaw is saying 1.6.0_07.

Since the obvious things have not helped, it may be time to start very
systematically. If you create a fresh workspace, and create a simple "hello
world" program in Java, and put a breakpoint in it and Debug, does it work?

If that doesn't work, I think I might back up even further, by downloading a
fresh copy of Eclipse and installing it into a fresh directory... maybe a
fresh copy of the JDK as well, and make sure to point Eclipse explicitly to
that JDK in the eclipse.ini file.

I'm sure this is extremely frustrating - my sympathies.

Just to confirm, did you also do the other steps I suggested, starting a
fresh workspace, creating a simple "hello world" Java program, setting a
breakpoint in it, and running Debug As... to see if you hit the breakpoint?
When you do that, are you still getting the "failure to attach"?

1. i reinstalled JDK
2. downloading a new copy of eclipse
3. creating a new workspace with eclipse
4. writing a hello world
5. the same error

if i can't get it to work, i'll try to reinstall my OS next weekend..

Maybe you should install the Win7 beta, instead :-)

I know we do of course have Vista users who are able to debug, but I don't
use Vista myself so I'm not sure what to say beyond what's already been
suggested. Sorry!

... no more beta testing for free :D

i want to use debian, but my notebook is not 'compatible' with debian, a
lot of missing drivers :(

thanks for your help... i will write again if a reinstall of vista solved
the problem...
