RE: Latest WinDbg : Where to get .pdb to view memory cont-ents

PDB is program data base files. These files are generated during the build
process. In Visual Studio, tell the linker you want to "Use program
database" on the Customize page of Settings. You may also need to set the
compiler's Debug info setting to C7 compatible.

I'm sure you can do this using the BUILD utility also. But I'm not sure what
the settings would be in the sources file.
