    Hello all

    Thank you to the author for providing such a succinct tutorial.
    I am having an issue with symbols, where when I open a Memory.dmp file, an error occurs in analysis:
    Code:
    ************* Symbol Path validation summary **************
    Response                         Time (ms)     Location
    Deferred                                       SRV*C:\SymCache*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
    Symbol search path is: SRV*C:\SymCache*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols
    Executable search path is: 
    *** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found.  Defaulted to export symbols for ntkrnlmp.exe - 
    Windows 10 Kernel Version 15063 MP (8 procs) Free x64
    Product: WinNt, suite: TerminalServer SingleUserTS
    Built by: 15063.0.amd64fre.rs2_release.170317-1834
    Machine Name:
    Kernel base = 0xfffff802`1a200000 PsLoadedModuleList = 0xfffff802`1a54c5a0
    Debug session time: Tue May 16 20:22:37.672 2017 (UTC + 8:00)
    System Uptime: 0 days 0:18:28.312
    *** ERROR: Symbol file could not be found.  Defaulted to export symbols for ntkrnlmp.exe - 
    Loading Kernel Symbols
    Granted the dump file is around 2GB (is this big?). I have run the analysis a few times in the hope that symbols may be downloaded eventually, but still an issue it seems.

    Can anybody see something in the text above to indicate where I may have gone wrong?

    Everyone is having the same problem with symbols for the 15063 build. The fix is for Microsoft to do, nothing you or I or anyone else can do about it.

    It's been reported multiple time but no resolution from Microsoft yet.

    In setting up the software to debug I was able to download and install. However I was not able to configure per page 1.

    1. Download the WinDBG sdksetup.exe setup file.
    2. Run sdksetup.exe, and specify the installation location (this example uses the default location):
    2. Copy the highlighted text below, and paste it into the command prompt window using Ctrl+V and hit enter to change directory to the installation location path.

    cd\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x64\






    The operating system is windows 10 version 1703 (OS Build 15063.296) x64 based PC.
    Windows PowerShell

    How do you associate the .dmp files with WinDBG when the above copy paste command does not work?
    Are there any other commands that may need modification?

    I suggest to try it in phases, like cd 1 or 2 folders at a time.

    Cd per folder:
    Code:
    cd\Program Files (x86)\
    cd\Windows Kits\
    cd\10\
    cd\Debuggers\
    cd\x64\
