Take cover from run-time errors. Test, debug and profile your code. Increase the quality, stability and performance of your Visual Basic 6.0 programs.

VB Watch is three tools in one: Profiler, Protector and Debugger. Profiler measures performance and test coverage. Protector implements robust error handling. Debugger helps monitor your executables. Download demo

VB Watch Profiler

Measure speed and coverage

Where are the bottlenecks? VB Watch Profiler lets you measure execution speed. See what procedures are the slowest ones, and which lines or loops are taking up most of the time. Or measure execution times before and after your enhancements.

Test coverage. Are you sure you tested all your code? VB Watch Profiler records your tests as you execute them. It shows you in red what procedures and lines are still untested.

Make sure you've tested all the Select Case branches and nested If..Then..Else blocks too.

VB Watch Protector

The best error handling ever

No more mysterious error messages and crashes! No more yelling users! Find bugs the easy way. VB Watch adds advanced error handlers to your code with a few clicks, keeping your existing handlers fully enabled.

Error messages can include: error description, procedure name, line number, parameter and variable values, object properties, call stack, screenshot, run-time library versions, and even execution trace procedure-by-procedure, line-by-line.

Have the users email all this info immediately when an error happens. This is the fastest way to fix bugs ever discovered.

Stop guessing. VB Watch tells you exactly where the bug is lurking!

VB Watch Debugger

Trace compiled apps

Does your code behave as it should when compiled? Debug compiled code!

Trace the procedure calls and executed code lines in your compiled apps. Even better, monitor and pause your app. See its status. What line is it on? What procedures were called with what arguments? Call stack? Which objects are alive? What global variable values are in effect? Setup breakpoints to your exe, dll or ocx and see what's really happening in it.

VB Watch Debugger allows remote debugging at client site via TCP/IP.

VB Watch Console

Automate VB Watch

The instrumentation console allows you to batch process projects with predefined settings.

VB Watch Console works together with VB Watch Profiler, Protector and Debugger. Run the Console to instrument one or more projects in a batch.

You can optionally call the Console from a batch file to add error handling in a fully automated way. You can have it run each time before you compile your program for the end-users.

VB Watch v2 works with Visual Basic 6.0. It does not support other languages such as VBA, VB.NET or C#.

All generated code is 100% pure VB source. You don't need to distribute any extra run-time libraries, unless you use some advanced Protector features.
