I am trying to debug into mscorlib.dll but the mscorlib.pdb can't be found in http://referencesource.microsoft.com/symbols
it is found in http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols but that does not have source code info.
Im running windows7, my mscorlib.dll is version 2.0.50727.4952 under:
I downloaded all the symbols and source from: http://referencesource.microsoft.com/netframework.aspx (Dotnetfx_Win7_3.5.1) but it is not there either...
Is it possible it is a new version and microsoft "forgot" to upload the correct pdb?
Just some more info, when I try to download from http://referencesource.microsoft.com/symbols it creates this directory:
mscorlib.pdb\1A288C5B0DE64342BF9D0258A43A1B631 WITH mscorlib.pdb file in it but it is 763kb only.
The Dotnetfx_Win7_3.5.1 source and symbols I downloaded from http://referencesource.microsoft.com/netframework.aspx has this dirs:
So clearly there is no match... where can I get the symbols and source for 1A288C5B0DE64342BF9D0258A43A1B631 ??

As far as I know, Visual Studio will automatically load symbol files for you if you enabled source server support (as well as source code stepping).
Please try to follow up this article to configure the settings in Visual Studio:
One tip to keep in mind, please check your environment variables _NT_SYMBOL_Path. You'd better add the path (http://referencesource.microsoft.com/symbols) to its value.
