How to load symbols for VS 2008

As seen in the box directly below, I have no symbol paths defined.  As a result, break points do not get hit - see the second picture below:

No symbol paths
Hollow point message
What can be done to resolve this problem?  If I go to the menu item - 'Debug\Window\'  there is no Module submenu item.  Therefore, I can not use the module option to automatically load the symbols.

The following msdn article talks about how easy symbol loading can be when in actuality, it is anything but straight forward!

Thanks for the help!

try go to the project property, -> Compile Tab -> Under the Advanced Compilation Options screen select 'Full' in the 'Generate debug info' combo.
Rebuild the solution, and try debug again.

Ends up the code could not enter this portion of code during initialization, hence no breaks were hit :|

The problem was not about loading symbols although the error would pop up if I hovered over the break during run-time
