SUMMARY
The documentation included with Visual C++ 5.0 incorrectly states that SQLServer does not need to be configured to log on under a user account forSQL Debugging to work in all cases.

If you are using SQL Debugging with one or two machines when you are usingSQL Server as a Service, you need to configure SQL Server to log on under auser account, not under the local system account.

If you use SQL Debugging with SQL Server logged on as the local systemaccount, the following error message will appear in the application eventlog from the source MSDEVSDI:
SQL Server when started as service must not log on as System Account. Reset to logon as user account using Control Panel.
MORE INFORMATION
The documentation in question can be found atmk:@ivt:vccore/F2D/D32/S4D107.HTM in the Visual C++ documentation.

NOTE: The documentation has been fixed for Visual C++ 6.0.
