Debuggee not connected(Using WinDbg) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello:

     I am developing a USB device driver in Windows 7. While using WinDbg to debug USB driver, I follow the precedure of "Getting Started with WinDbg (Kernel-Mode)"Microsoft document. 1. setting the "targetname of target computer" from control panel/system/computer name. 2. using USB 3.0 debug cable to connect both host computer and target computer. 3. Get started using WinDbg in host computer by "WinDbg/File/Kernel Debugging/USB2.0/Target name- target name. Then I get the following message"Using USB2 for debugging Waiting to reconnect... Debuggee not connected. Can you provide more detailed information to solve the problem.

    On the other hand, Microsoft document in "Setting Up Kernel-Mode Debugging over a USB 3.0 Cable Manually/

    Setting Up the Target Computer/In UsbView, expand the nodes of the xHCI host controllers. L

    ook for an indication that a port on the host controller supports debugging/ Is Port Debug Capable: yes

    So “Is Port Debug Capable” can be set from system setting or BIOS,

    or every computer has its fixed cabability in this item and can’t be set.


    Thank you
