    Presumably you're downloading the symbol files OK, that's a bit of a surprise because Symbol Retriever seems to require an updated symsrv.dll, which you can get from WinDbg.

    You could try translating the pdb files manually with nmsym.exe from the command line.

    Alternatively you could use Mostek's IDA2Sice and do it in a 2 step process.
