How can I get hold of the debug symbols (.PDB files) of Windows NT 4 Service Pack 6 (or 6a, I guess) ?

They're not on the SP CD, at least I didn't find them. I'm MSDN Universal Subscriber, so there might be a CD where I have it, but don't know where.

Or can they be downloaded ?

See http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q152734 ("How to Obtain the Latest Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack (Q152734)")

Go to http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/SP6/allSP6.asp ("Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 6a") and follow the link to http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/SP6/debug/default.asp ("Service Pack 6a Debug Symbols"), where you can download them...

On disk 0430, a green one, released January 2001, you will find the debugging symbols in the support directory, like this D:\SUPPORT\DEBUG (if D: is your cdrom-drive).

Cheers,

Thank you very much, abel. That might be the reason why I didn't find it. I receive DVDs, and there's no 0430 under them, at least not in the shipments since half a year.

The original symbols for 6a were released earlier then that, but in jan 2001, they Usually, when you subscribe, your initial shipment will contain all the discs, to complete the set you subscribed for.

You may look at http://msdn.microsoft.com/subscriptions/index
to find the debugging symbols disc.
I found that nr 601 in the DVD shipment of jan 2001 (the initial release for the new system) should be the one that contains the debugging symbols. Probably in a similar-like directory as I noted earlier.

If you still can't find them, you can always download them of course ;-)

Have you considered downloading them from the locations I pointed out? You could already have them...
