]WinDbg] new beta 3.0

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Well I tried it, and I am still watching it to tell me that it can't verify
the timestamp after it caught a BSOD. From what I could tell there was
plenty of information being dumped, but I can't look at it because it's
still telling me it can't verify the time stamp on every god damned source
module in the god damned system. This is rather important, since it EATS UP
RESOURCES and my system starts bitching about windows I need to close
because I'm running low on virtual memory, which slows things down even
further.

Not a very good first showing. :-( But it's only a beta ...

    Buy more physical memory, and increase your pagefile size. Seriously.

    I only have 256 MB here at work, and I only run out of VM when I use a
    particularly buggy app that leaks VM like melting ice cream. I've never had
    WinDBG cause that. I don't think I've caught a BSOD with the new beta,
    though, so maybe that's the difference.

  • I've gotten some of those complaints, but they're many fewer than they were
    with v 2.0023.

    Well, I'm waiting on the machine with 512 meg RAM and 20 gig HDD, but right
    now I have work to do on 128 meg RAM. The point it I was hoping the time
    stamp problem had been MOIDERED!!!

    We will still print the timestamp warning message if the timestamp is
    actually wrong (symbols doe snot match the image).

    If you think you have the right symbols for the image and are still getting
    the message, please let me know and we can look at it further.

    Andre,

    I downloaded the ISO files for 2462 support and the OS when it was first
    available for download. I would assume that the symbol files in the Support
    ISO file were the correct files. The date on the files in ..\Symbols\sys is
    03/15/01, and the date on the drivers in %SystemRoot%\Sytem32/Drivers is
    03/20/2001, with a few files still dated 03/15/01. I looked at the dates on
    the HAL DLLs and the HAL PDBs, with the same results. Quite possibly the
    symbol files are the culprit.

    Now, I'm not bitching here, really, just letting you know you missed one
    aspect of the problem, or the wrong symbol files were released.

    Sounds like the symbols are wrong.
