Thanks a lot, Joseph. Sorry, I am not able to locate your exact answer from
the thread. Also, my intent is to be able to debug the heat command. I have
banging my head on the wall with an issue harvesting COM components. A
runtime exception with a component, warnings with other components and so
on. I didn't get any help from here as well. That's why, I thought of
giving it a try to debug the heat command using the source code, but no
luck yet.
