Here are some pointers (for Delphi 5) what you should look at.

The following steps will stop the debugger from stepping into the VCL:

1) Go to menu 'Project | Options' and there click on tab 'Compiler'. Then uncheck the 'Use Debug DCUs' option under 'Debugging'. This is a project-specific setting.

2) Also check to be sure your Library path just points to LIB, not LIB\DEBUG. This is an environment option and will affect all projects.

3) Remove the VCL source directories from the Search Path. This is also a project specific setting. Choose under 'Project | Options' the tab 'Directories/Conditionals'. Delphi 5 allows to remove directories comfortably from the search path. The VCL source directories will look like

Happy Debugging!
