DrWatson Symbols

Hi,

I am trying to get a "crash" log from DrWatson.
I put the *.map file in the folder of that I programed the DrWatson
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\DrWatson
key=LogFilePath
DrWatson created the log file:
C:\Users\Shlomo\AppData\Roaming\Icu\Data\DrWatson\drwtsn32.log
But
put the error:
*** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found.  Defaulted to export symbols for C:\WINDOWS\system32\msvcrt.dll -

I need the log with the symbols.

The map file does not contain any symbols, these are stored in the .pdb files that are created when you build your application. Make sure these reside in the same directory where your app is. If you are dealing with a relese build, check out http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/fsk896zz(VS.71).aspx ("Debugging a Release Build") on how to enable the creation of .pdb files for these, too.

Thank you.
It worked and I will give you the points, but before that it works only in XP.
In VISTA I don't get the DrWastson log at all (drwtsn32.log).
Do you know why?

Hm, there is no Dr. Watson on Vista... see http://support.microsoft.com/kb/951018 ("How to generate a full user-mode dump file in Windows Vista") for the Vista way (prett stupid for MS to not include Dr. Watson with Vista also, if you ask me)

See http://www.dumpanalysis.org/blog/index.php/2007/05/19/resurrecting-dr-watson-on-vista/
You need drwtsn32.exe copied from an XP machine BUT you can resurrect the DR's "practicing license".
