    Windows Kernel Debugging Setup + Windbg SYMBOL Setup


    WINDOWS DEBUGGING

    Debugging Tools for Windows - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/windows/hardware/ff551063(v=vs.85).aspx


    SET SYMBOL PATH
    There is no need to download Windbg Symbol Packages as symbol files will download in real-time (& then cached) during debugging from the Microsoft Symbol Server (often referred to as the "MSDL SYM Site" here at Sysnative Forums)

    - Open up Windbg
    - Do not open a dump file
    - Press CTRL + S (Symbol File Path)
    - Paste the following:
    Code:
    
    SRV*c:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols 
    - Click "File"; Select "Save Workspace"
    - Exit Windbg
    - If "...Save workspace settings" screen appears, select "YES"
    - Your symbol path should now be set

    Note: You can choose the location (mine = c:\symbols)

    Your symbol cache will build up over time ; mine is currently ~ 2 GB





    To set Windbg to run for dump files, please see - Register Windbg for dump files (File Associations) - Sysnative Forums
