Hunting bugs

1. Get Sysinternals Suite.
2. Start Process Explorer and/or Process Monitor.
3. Go to Options, Configure Symbols...

DbgHelp.dll path (version 6.0 or later, not in system32; the version of DbgHelp that ships in Windows has reduced functionality from the other releases-- specifically, it lacks support for Symbol Server and Source Server.):
C:\Windows\system32\dbghelp.dll
C:\Program Files\Debugging Tools for Windows (x64)\dbghelp.dll

Symbols path(s):
SRV*I:\symbols*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols;SRV*I:\symbols*http://symbols.mozilla.org/firefox

"I:\symbols" is the location of my symbols cache; yours may differ.

  1. Or perhaps C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64\dbghelp.dll on Windows 8.1.
