IDebugSymbols::SetSymbolPath does not work with server paths RRS feed

  • Question

  • IDebugSymbols::SetSymbolPath

    If server paths (srv*...) are specified, e.g. IDebugSymbols::SetSymbolPath or IDebugControl::Execute(".sympath srv*...") return S_OK, but symbols are not loaded. Symbols are loaded only if local paths specified.

    At the same time everything works fine in windbg.exe or cdb.exe.

    Could you advise where the reason and how to resolve.

  • IIRC support of symserver needs dbghelp.dll of debugging-tools, not the one shipped with Windows.
    Also, it needs symsvr.dll of debugging-tools.
    Does it help, if you copy them into same dir, where your debugger lives.

    With kind regads
