New test release of WinDBG

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
My team has just released a new test version of WinDBG on
http://www.microsoft.com/ddk/debugging

We have done some major work on the UI, reenabling all the important features that were missing from the WinHEC release.
We have added a number of new debugger commands, and fixed a lot of bugs reported by our internal users.

We are acutally getting more internal usage of WinDBG then ever. Many of the hardcore i386kd.exe users are now using WinDBG, and we have had very few complaints (all of which have been fixed already)

So I really hope you will give it a try and give us some feedback at [email protected]

We appreciate the good feeback but really want to hear about the bad. Don't get frustrated with the debugger - let us know about the problems so we can fix them !


I also encourage *everyone* to take a look through the documentation.
I especially encourage advanced users to look through the reference section for the debugger commands, as we have enhanced and added many commands. A number of commands have also changed from the old WinDBG as our command syntax is based on i386kd.exe

If you find any bugs (even bugsin the documentation), please let us know - we will do our best to get them fixed quickly.

Bugs, request for features, praise, complaints, etc : send mail to [email protected]

Thanks,

The WinDBG team.

    Do you have a version that intergrates the IFS toolkit?
    The last version of the IFS kit came with a complete DDK.

    WinDBG is independent of any of any SDK\DDK\IFS\HAL kits.
    WinDBG is a stand-alone package.
