Debugging Tools for NT-Based Operating Systems

The debuggers in the Debugging Tools for Windows package can run on all NT-based operating systems. They can debug any applications, services, or drivers that run on these operating systems. They do not support Windows 95/98/Me.

The Debugging Tools for Windows package includes documentation on WinDbg, KD, CDB, and NTSD, along with tips on how to debug various kinds of drivers and applications, how to create and analyze a crash dump file, how to run a remote debugging session, and how to use debugger extension commands. This package also includes several additional debugging tools and support tools.

Debugging Tools for Windows supports debugging of:
  • Applications, services, drivers, and the Windows kernel.
  • Native 32-bit x86, native Intel Itanium, and native x64 platforms.
  • Microsoft Windows NT 4.0, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Microsoft Windows Server 2003, and Windows Vista.
  • User-mode programs and kernel-mode programs.
  • Live targets and dump files.
  • Local and remote targets.
WinDbg provides source-level debugging through a graphical user interface and a text-based interface.

WinDbg uses the Microsoft Visual Studio debug symbol formats for source-level debugging. It can access any public function's names and variables exposed by modules that were compiled with Codeview (.pdb) symbol files.

WinDbg can view source code, set breakpoints, view variables (including C++ objects), stack traces, and memory. It includes a command window to issue a wide variety of commands not available through the drop-down menus.
