Operating system symbols out of date warning



Load operating system symbols into SoftICE receives the message.

WARNING: Symbol file 'ntoskrnl' has no timestamp, and may be out-of-date! Re-translate the NMS file with the latest tools to fix


The way to work around this is to use symbol retriever to obtain the debug information for the file you want to use (Example would be ntoskrnl.exe).

Make a copy of that file and put it into the directory that symbol retriever created. Make sure it is the one that has the dbg and pdb file.

Then use symbol loader to open the file that is in the symbol retriever created directory.

From there you can load the symbols into softice.
