To start the Debugger in attachable mode, follow the instructions below, based on your platform:
*Windows — From the Start menu, choose Programs > OpenEdge > Debugger.
*UNIX — Change directory (cd) to $DLC/bin. At the prompt, type proDebugger.

*To attach the Debugger to a process use the Attach to Process dialog box. For more information on the Attach to Process dialog box, see Attach to Process dialog box .
