I have 2 Dell 1420's, both running under Vista Home Premium. One is a few months older than the other. I am running Borland C++ Builder Personal Version 6.0 on both of them. The older computer runs the c++ compiler flawlessly. On the newer computer, however, the debugger isn't working properly. When execution stops because a breakpoint has been hit, putting the cursor over a variable name does nothing at all. Also, when I put the cursor on an item in the component palette no hint is displayed.
I copied the Borland entire folder from the older computer (where all is well) and put it as is on the newer computer. Same result.
Is this a problem with the Vista environment or with Borland? I sorta vote for a Vista problem on the newest computer, but how do I fix it?
