How to Clear Windbg Cache? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I use Windbg to debug my driver. After I close my session, restart another one, all the symbol paths and source path are still the  same and it start to load the source from the source path. I find it very very annoying :(. 

    I am using Windows 7 desktop and before closing the session I tried the following things.

    1. Delete any saved windbg workspaces and clear all workspace settings.

    2. Delete %temp% folder

    Even reboot doesn't work :(  , am I missing anything which I need to clear? 

    Let me know, thanks!

  • Go into the workspace and clear the paths to the source and the symbols, then save it.  You may still find it tries to load things, but it is less likely.
