Debugging symbols (TC4.4.1) and ASP.NET RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,


    Our application is a WEB-server written on ASP.NET.

    I am trying to reproduce the TC4.4.1 steps and encountered some problems... First things first.

    1. We have included the .pdb symbol files for all application's binaries into the installer.
    2. After a successfull installation and first launch of the application, I tried to launch WinDbg from the Certification Tool. It does not see the w3wp.exe (the IIS worker process), since it is a system process.
    3. Okay, I launched it manually, with elevation, and attached to w3wp. But now the debugger shows "ERROR: Symbol file could not be found" message, hence the test is failed.
    4. Setting the "File->Symbol File Path..." option to a proper folder path didn't help.

    Is it possible to use WinDbg to debug ASP.NET apps? What should we do to complete this test case?


    I need help... Thank you in advance.
