Which setting(s) influence the enabling/disabling option of Macro debugging?

The check box Debug macro with built-in Macro Debugger can not be check'd. What can I do?

If the check box Debug macro with built-in Macro Debugger is disabled, the required library pdm.dll (version 9.0.30729.1) was not available. Because of the standard installation of this library, the UDE setup does not install or verify this library. Depending from the OS variant (x86 or x64) and from the installer, the library is located typically in

  C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\microsoft shared\VS7Debug\pdm.dll
  C:\Program Files\Common Files\microsoft shared\VS7Debug\pdm.dll

or can be located in an other location.
Typically, the macro debug component is installed by one of the following installers:

  • Visual Studio 20xx (all versions)
  • Remotetools for Visual Studio 20xx (all versions).

Please register the library from command line (Windows 10 or later console must be started with administrator rights):

  Regsvr32.exe <Path to library>\pdm.dll

If the library cannot be registered nor cannot be found on the system, reinstall the Visual Studio or install Remotetools for Visual Studio.
