I wonder if someone from Microsoft could answer this.
Is there a way to download older symbols and original binaries from MS symbol server?
Like the ones from Windows XP?
Thanks in advance.
It seems that some time ago (not exactly sure when), Microsoft decided to cleanup the symbol server store. Since then, older symbols seem to be no more there and the files have changed names, because they are no longer compressed (or they seem to be, at least).
===== OLD STRUCTURE ====
Files were stored compressed, as CAB files.
Example: calc.exe 5.1.2600.0 from vanilla Windows XP
That file is no longer available. The same applies to e.g. kernel32.pdb (.pd_, respectively)
===== NEW STRUCTURE ====
Files are stored in plain (uncompressed) form, be it EXE or PDB.
Example: calc.exe v 10.0.0.17763.1 (x64)
Remote path is: http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols/calc.exe/8F598A9EB000/calc.exe
Can download OK, e.g. with wget.
