Multi Process Debugging

Q: Which processes can be debugged with 'Multiprocess Debugging'?

Q: What does 'Don't Debug' mean?
A: With this option you can specify script names of programs, that should not be started under the control of the debugger in 'Multiprocess Debugging' mode.

Q: Where do I see, which processes are under debugger control?
A: The top pane of the 'Debug Viewer' shows a list of all attached debuggers with their processes and threads within these processes. This pane can be used to select the active debugger, which will receive debugger commands and display its variables.
