c++.dos.16-bits - CodeView crashing on some .exe's

Hi.

I've been porting, enhancing, and rewriting a medium size
DOS application using DMC++.  As the ported portion grows,
from time to time the produced .exe causes CodeView to
crash, and sometimes to crash its NTVDM, upon loading.
In the past, I have been able to jigger the .exe enough,
by changing link options and revising .obj ordering, to
get CodeView to load and run it.  But this is tedious and,
with my latest and greatest .exe, seemingly impossible.

Has anybody else seen CodeView crashing with DMC .exe's?
Does anybody know how to avoid this?

Is there a symbolic debugger for DMC 16-bit .exe's that
will run under Windows NT?

I haven't seen that.

There is Microsoft's SYMDEB, a more primitive debugger. I've also had good success with Rational Systems' "D" debugger, but they don't sell it anymore. I'm trying to find the author of the old Zortech debugger, which would be far and away the best choice, but so far no joy.
