Can't find PDBDLL in SoftICE symbol loader

0 Likes

Problem:

I always get  "Error: Can't find Visual C PDB DLL in path.

Does SoftIce support VC 6? If any, How?

Resolution:

SoftICE is looking for one of three files:  MSPDB60.DLL (VC 6.0) MSPDB50.DLL (VC 5.0) or MSPDB41.DLL (VC 4.0). These DLLs normally appear in the \Program Files\Dev Studio\SharedIDE\Bin directory but their location may vary depending on your configuration.

To resolve this problem you must find the directory that contains these dlls and place it in your path. On Windows 95 you can add this path to your autoexec.bat or on NT you can edit your system environment variables from the control panel.

The alternative to setting up your environment variables is to copy the appropriate DLL into your SoftICE directory.
