After installing Version 5 of  Visual C++ I get the following error message when I load an app from the debugger.

 no matching symbolic information found.

What can I do to get rid of these messages?

Set your compiler and linker to generate debugingging information.

These appear after notification that a DLL is loaded.  These are microsoft DLL's, not mine.

It would help if you reproduced the complete error message.  There IS more to it.

Have you tried deleting all OBJ and EXE files and recompiling from scratch.  There might be a version problem.

here is a little more of the error messages.  I get about 20-30 of these.
I am running NT version 4.0 service pack 2

Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\KERNEL32.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\gdi32.dll', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\USER32.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\ADVAPI32.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\RPCRT4.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\ODBC32.DLL', no matching symbolic information found.
Loaded 'D:\WINNT\system32\msvcrt40.dll', no matching symbolic information found.
These DLL's (and apps) don't contain symbolic information (such as identifier names, line numbers etc..). When you load an app with the debugger it assumes you want to debug it, a task where the presence of symbolic information is very usefull. Basically you would only load apps with the debugger that you wrote yourself, and that need debugging. For these you can set the compiler and linker to generate debug info, as md noted.
