While trying to debug a windows issue using windbg, I came across debuging sysmbols
not getting loaded and got an error “module load completed but sysmbols cannot be
The easiest fix is:
1. Start the WinDBG
2. Select File >, “Symbol File Path…”
c) Set the path
Here you need to create a folder caled sysmbols before adding this. And you should be done. Now you can debug the dmp files using windows.
Update: I found a windows symbols which can be downloaded. Do a google
for “Download Windows Symbol Packages and hopefully you may not have to
do the above. But for me right now it pulls down the symbols as long
as I have internet.
