CDB Paths

To obtain debugging information for the operating system libraries for debugging Windows applications, add the Microsoft Symbol Server to the symbol search path of the debugger:

  1. Go to Preferences > Debugger > CDB Paths.

  2. In the Symbol Paths group, select Insert.
  3. Select the directory where you want to store the cached information. Use a subfolder in a temporary directory, such as C:\temp\symbolcache.
  4. Select OK.

Note: Populating the cache might take a long time on a slow network connection.

To use the Source Server infrastructure for fetching missing source files directly from version control or the web, enter the following string in the Source Paths field: srv*.
