Are there debug symbols for SQLCE 3.5.8109? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    We use latest build of SQLCE 3.5.8109. But debug symbols are missing for these files.
    Can you please help, where can I find debug symbols for new version?

    Output of symchk for https://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols (note that symbols are available for 3.5.8080):

  • Hello Dmitry,

    You can use the symchk.exe utility to download any necessary PDB files.

    To get symchk.exe , you need to install the Windows SDK and select to install the Debugging Tools for Windows package.

    Note that you can only  install the debugging tools as a standalone component from the Windows SDK. In the SDK installation wizard, select Debugging Tools for Windows, and deselect all other components.

    According to your operating system , please install the corresponding Windows SDK from here.(If your computer is  windows 8 or earlier, you can choose  the Windows 8 SDK )

    The symchk.exe is installed by default at "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x86\symchk.exe"

    Before we get started, you could create a folder called C:\symbols that will be used to store the downloaded PDB files. You can then run symchk using the following command to download an executable's associated symbol files.
    symchk.exe [filename] /s SRV*[symbol_folder]*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

    As an example, if we want to download the symbol files associated with C:\Windows\system32\calc.exe and store them in C:\Symbols, we would issue the following command:

    symchk.exe "c:\windows\system32\calc.exe" /s SRV*c:\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

    like this :

    Hope this could help you.

    Best regards,

  • Hello Dmitry,

    It seems that you are already using symchk.exe.

    I think there are no debug symbols for SQLCE 3.5.8109.

    As of February 2013 SQL Server Compact Edition had been deprecated; no new versions or updates are planned, although Microsoft will continue to support until July 20.
