The challenge with Script Debugging, Microsoft Process Debug Engine within Enterprise Architect.

Written by 

 

"VBScript and JScript require the Microsoft Process Debug Manager (PDM.dll) to be installed on the local machine; this is available through various Microsoft products including the free 'Microsoft Script Debugger'"

(refer to: http://sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/automation/debug_scripts.html)

 

The issue is: Microsoft Script Debugger as is - is depricated and here is the list (not complete for sure), where PDM is part of:

* Office 2000-2007

* Visual Studio

* Visual Studio Remote Tools (PDM stays installed even after uninstall of the Remote Tools)

 

Depending on the used operating system of Microsoft you will find Process Debug Manager (PDM.DLL) in the following folders:

 

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 (64bit)

C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\pdm.dll

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1 (32bit)

C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\pdm.dll

 

Windows 10 _before_ v1607

Windows 10 (64bit)

C:\Windows\SysWow64\F12\pdm.dll

Windows 10 (32bit)

C:\Windows\System32\F12\pdm.dll 

 

This file (pdm.dll) must be registerd manually using regsvr32.

 

Windows 10 v1607:

in this version manual installation of pdm.dll is not possible anymore. So you have to install a Microsoft Product that contains PDM.dll.

 

I recommend using the "Remote Tools for Visual Studio 2015 Update 3"

32bit: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=615469&clcid=0x407

64bit: https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=615470&clcid=0x407

 

After installation you can uninstall them - because PDM.DLL resists and can be used by Enterprise Architect.

I am an extrovert promoter and results-oriented controller and director. It like creating new partnerships and relations. I like people that are talking with me and it is important for me to help and motivate others. I'm very self-motivated and I prefer doing thinks I really like. I need a lot of creative and open space. But I also need people doing the administrative tasks and people realizing the ideas.

My highest motivation is doing creative work with and around Enterprise Architect. (www.sparxsystems.de)
