    How to get Microsoft to publish symbols when a new build is released


    Every time a new build is publicly released, there seems to be a period of weeks before Microsoft remembers to make the symbol files available on their symbol server or symbol download server. Makes it impossible to look at dumps and get anything meaningful from them.

    Right now, any of the Creator Updates versions can't be debugged because the symbols are not available.

    Making the symbols available should be a part of the release process. Actually it should be one of the check points required before a public release is made.

    I don't know if this will help. I know it says Insider Preview but it might be worth a try.

    Symbols MSI Insider Preview Build 15063 32-bit 64-bit

    That appears to be the same as what I already have: Windows_Rs2.15063.0.170317-1834.x64FRE.Symbols.msi. Doesn't help with dumps from the updates on top of 15063.

    I uninstalled all versions of the SDK using Revo Uninstaller Pro and deleted the symcache folder. Installed the 10586 version of the SDK and now I am able to read all dumps again. I have not downloaded any symbol .msi sets, just letting the symcache (G:\Symbols in my case) build up as windbg is used.

    I will try uninstalling the 10586 version and installing the 15063 SDK and see if that will work or not.

First of all, let me say that I have no inside info on this topic. Now that Microsoft seems to be on a fast release cycle for Insider builds, I would expect that we should see a new build soon. Maybe this week?! I base this hope on the fact...
