softice for win98 and win2000

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
Dear all,
I'm using softice 4.05,
Under windows 98se, if I build my WDM driver source code, and include "USE_PDB=1" in the file " sources ", I find softice can not translate symbols, with the following error message:

L:\Work\SYS\OBJ\I386\CHECKED\stw.sys opened successfully
Translating L:\Work\SYS\OBJ\I386\CHECKED\stw.sys. . .
Error: GetProcAddress on DBI DLL failed

If I do not include "USE_PDB=1" in the file " sources ",
softice can translate symbols, but when I debug the driver, the debuger
don't recognize types defined by myself
Under windows2000, no such problems exist, but softice can not run on certain
computers under win2000.

would you please explain how to include detailed debug information under win98. thanks.

wen, aijun

    Be sure you have correct MSPDBxx.DLL in your path.

    >>Error: GetProcAddress on DBI DLL failed

    If you do not have MSPDB60.DLL , you can use the nmsym.exe and nmtrans.dll from one of previous versions of SoftIce. I use ones from
    4.01.
