"Symbol file could not be found" error when running WinDbg
Posted on 2003-11-10
I have written a service which I want to debug. I am using WinDbg to attach to the service process. When I do this, I always get the error, "*** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found. Defaulted to export symbols for C:\WINDOWS\System32\ntdll.dll -
I have set up the Symbol File Path to point to my debug folder which contains the .exe, .pdb, .obj files. I have also added the vc96 bin folder and the ms sdk bin folder to the path. What file is WinDbg looking for?
