On this one I am holding my breath. I recently received a new Dell Precision
M4500 laptop, loaded, and attempted to run WinDbg for the first time. An
attempt was made to install the driver but that attempt failed, and after a
reboot I cannot attach to the target. Device manager says the laptop is
using a RICOH 1394 OHCI compliant host controller. Foolishly I ran WinDbg
un-elevated the first time, which probably why the install of the driver
failed. I then updated the 1394 driver to the drivers in the WinDbg
directory, but that still did not connect. Finally, I did system restore to
a time before the first aborted run of WinDbg, then a system update followed
by removing and installing WinDbg. All of that done I elevated WinDbg and
let'r rip. Samething.
"Wrote 0 of 1 bytes of the breakin packet.
Failed to write breakin packet to target. Win32 error 0n2
WARNING: The HOST cannot communicate with the TARGET!"
It is well known that 1394 and WinDbg are very sensitive to each other and
I've got a sick feeling this may be the case. Has anyone else run across
