    With that option disabled, you also can’t set memory breakpoints.  I accidentally turned that off (probably hoping it would get rid of that prompt asking if I wanted to see disassembly) and could NOT figure out where the option to set memory breakpoints went.

    I have the option checked and only see three options in the Debug|Windows menu.

    Breakpoints

    Output

    Immediate

    Like Mike, I only see the three options:

    Breakpoints

    Output

    Immediate.

    I vaguely remember ONCE seeing those other options.  Is there a flag that I had inadvertently set to disable those other windows?

    Thanks
