Notes for Implementers

A DE or a custom port supplier implements this interface on the same object that implements IDebugProgramNode2 to support establishing a specific DE to use for a particular program.

Notes for Callers

Call QueryInterface on an IDebugProgramNode2 interface to obtain this interface.

Methods in Vtable Order

The following table shows the methods of IDebugProgramEngines2.

Method Description
EnumPossibleEngines Indicates all the possible DEs that can debug this program.
