I'm running Delphi XE7, and mysteriously/randomly Delphi XE7 will sometimes ONLY show the CPU view when debugging my 64-bit Windows app, and not let me step through any Pascal source. It will stop on a breakpoint but only show CPU view when the breakpoint is hit, and right click - View Source does nothing. When this occurs, if I go to the Modules view, none of the entry points and addresses are showing up for the program's .EXE itself. I can debug a .DLL module used by my project, that was compiled in Delphi, because the module entry points and addresses do show up when I click on that .DLL in the modules window, unlike when I click on the main .EXE in that same Modules window. When this issue occurs, quitting Delphi and restarting it does not resolve it. If I reboot the entire computer, this issue can resolve itself but may start happening again the same day. Today it occurred, and I rebooted, and it resolved it, but then it happened the 2nd time I ran the program in the IDE, which is very frustrating. I have yet to find a way to get the issue to resolve without rebooting. When this issue occurs with my project, I'm able to load a different 64-bit Delphi project and debug it, so it is not a matter of the XE7 debugger itself failing to load module entry points for the main .exe of all 64-bit apps, just the project I want to work on, and it's very mysterious, because I've gone a week or two at a time without the issue occurring with my project and then it happens and rebooting the machine is the only thing that may resolve it, at least temporarily. By the way, the Modules view does show the Base Address, Module Name and .rsm file for the program's .EXE but, again, when you click on the main exe then none of the entry points and addresses are showing up. I'll also mention that I can debug other projects with the same settings as my project when this issue occurs. When this issue occurs, and the main .EXE module is loaded for my project the Event Log does still indicate that the main .EXE has debug info. Any idea why this is occurring, and will it still occur after upgrading to the latest version of Delphi? I keep getting sales calls about upgrading. This was never an issue when I debugged 32-bit apps. Thanks, J.
