    WinDbg error.


    Hi,

    I'm quite active on the BSOD subforum of Sevenforums and recently I've been having a small issue with WinDbg and I tried to fix it but it didn't work. It has something to do with symbols and its path has somehow gotten a bit messy.

    Above is the error output that happens whenever I open up a dmp file with WinDbg.

    I can't really recall that I've done anything specifically odd prior to getting this error.

    Create a folder called: symbols then create 2 sub folders called: private and web
    Add 2 system variables:
    _NT_ALT_SYMBOL_PATH
    _NT_SYMBOL_PATH
    and set them both to:
    d:\symbols\private;srv*d:\symbols\web*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

    NOTE:
    I created in d: drive, change the drive where you create yours.

    I've got it somewhat fixed, now it kinda prints double the checking of the symbols, sometimes it does, sometimes not, is this also a fixable error?

    I don't have this problem so I cannot tell you what's wrong.
    How did you set up WinDebug in the first place ? From WinDBG - Install Configure - Windows 10 Forums ?
    FYI, I didn't follow the tutorial. Just Install WinDebug for Windows 10 and set those 2's environment variables.

    EDIT: you can try to delete everything under x:\symbols\web (Change x: to your drive letter) and let WinDebug re-download the symbols.

    Those errors have a few reasons:
    • Missing symbols
    • Corrupted symbols,
    • Counterfeit system,
    • Hardware damage,
    • Improper configuration of Windbg,
    • Microsoft servers down (rarely happening)


    In case of missing symbols, simply reload (re-open) the dumps a few times so the symbols are downloaded.

    In case of corrupted symbols,


    • empty the symbol folder, move the symbols to a different folder,
    • open the dump a few times, this should download the necessary symbols,
    • move the symbols back to the original folder and say no when Windows asks if you want to copy the files with the same name too.

    Well I mean honestly I can live with it. I just wanted to know if it was a common thing or not.

    It is a very common thing, especially with new users
