Help with .sympath+

I'm getting this error when trying to add my driver to the symbol path:
Error: Execute .sympath(+) command attempts to access 'C:\kernelmodewpmrpm' failed: 0x2 - The system cannot find the file specified.
The files are all in a folder in C:
What am I doing wrong? I want to set breakpoints for my driver.

    What, exactly, was your .sympath command? Do you actually have a folder called C:\kernelmodewpmrpm in the root of your C: drive that contains symbols? And do you remember that the symbol path is on the computer running windbg, NOT the computer being debugged?
