'Declaration
Sub Attach2 ( _
    Engines As Object _

        Engines:Object -> unit 
function Attach2(
    Engines : Object
)

Parameters

Remarks

Attach2 allows you to attach to a process using a specific debugging engine or set of engines. The Engines parameter can be a single BSTR, a collection of BSTRs, a single Engine object or a collection of Engine objects. If specified as a BSTR, the first few chars of the engine name or it's ID (GUID) can be supplied. The list of engines is specific to a given Transport.
