Windbg "modifies" symbol path

wdwd Member - All Emails Posts: 33
Hi all. Im having an issue with windbg 10.0.10240.9 apparently not saving changes / making modifications to my symbol path. I make a change, to the path, save the default workspace. When I reload windbg the symbol path has several old paths prepended onto the path info I just set. Basically what I'm trying to do is put my local build path ahead of the problematic https://msdl.microsoft... URL. I do not have a _NT_SYMBOL_PATH environment var set either. Any suggestions appreciated.

    I haven't noticed this, but I haven't specifically gone looking for this
    either. Do you have paths set in your non-default workspace?

    You might want to try deleting all of your workspaces and starting clean
    (delete or rename HKCU\Software\Microsoft\WinDbg\Workspaces)

    1. Open WinDbg
    2. Go to File->Clear Workspace, clear Unicode symbol path and then save
    workspace (File->Save Workspace)
    3. Connect to your target, change symbol path and then save workspace
    (File->Save Workspace)
