ntdll.dbg and kernel32.dbg

OSR_Community_UserOSR_Community_User Member Posts: 110,217
I'm trying to run Windbg on an executable file.
But I was missing the files: ntdll.dbg and kernel32.dbg.
So I installed them from the Visual Studio 6 debug directory.
The only problem is, that the versions (timestamp) are different!
I searched Service Pack 5 (which I installed a week ago), but I was unable
to find it there. Actually, I couldn't find this file (ntdll.dbg)
anywhere.

Where can I find it? I need the one that will match my service pack too.

Many thanks, Alon.

    http://www.microsoft.com/ntserver/nts/downloads/recommended/SP6/ has
    links for NT 4.0 SP6a, including symbols. it wasn't clear to me in the
    below message that you installed this or not, or you're talking about
    NT or VC service packs.
