    Windows,its debug binaries and SoftIce

    Howdy!
    I happen to have the debug version of some of Windoze's vxds and dlls.
    The problem is i don't know what i have to do.
    Hehe.
    Gots the debug .dll and its '.sym' file. What is it that i have to do so as to see the symbols in softice?
    Any ptr is appreciated as per usual.
    Thanks!

    SoftICE only deals with *.NMS files. So you have to translate SYM/PDB/DBG into NMS. You can use SoftICE Symbol Loader to do this, or use the command-line utility NMSYM.EXE, which resides in the same directory of symbol loader.

    good luck

    Hey solomon i got another q now
    I did translate the kernel32.sym to kernel32.nms and put both the dll and its .nms file inside my %WinRoot%\system dir.
    But after some reboot, kernel32 crashed.
    Did i miss something here?
    Does this means that i have some wrong .dll versions?
    Thanks again for your time.

    hi
    The version of SYM and DLL must be the same. The corresponding symbol files can be obtained from the installation CD of Windows. For win2k release version, just click X:\SYMBOLS\I386\RETAIL\SYMBOLSX.EXE to install the symbol files. I have tried this and it worked.

    Solomon, thanks once again
    I've been able to load symbols and now i can see them in Sice.
    Still got problems with the debug version of kernel32 though.
    Eventually i'll come up with the solution.
    Thanks again.
