Hi, I'm Pramana

I'm using Visual Studio 2013. My problem is every time when i want to run my C/C++ codes using local windows debugger error will occurred.

Cannot find or open the pdb file. I have checklist the Microsoft Symbol Server, or download the PDB file ( 600mb size ) and install it on my local hardrive. And i did add the path to my PDB file on my local hardrive.

Yet still error.

here the list of error.

Seems my Visual Studio still load the PDB file from Windows\SysWOW64. Then how do i change the load address ?

Thank You

Try running VS as an administrator with "run as administrator".

These are not errors but informational messages. They tell you that there are no symbol (.pdb) files for the DLL's loaded by your app. But the symbols for your app has been loaded (see the first message).

Such PDB files are created when building your app. Because the system DLL's are not build by you, you did not get the corresponding PDB files. You don't need them because you usually want to debug your code and not the code of system DLLs.

@Jochen Arndt, yes, because this code is just a console application i don't need them, but then how to debug my code if those information messages shows up ?

You are already debugging our code. The messages are shown in the debug output window telling you what has happened:

'Your.exe: Loaded some.dll'
This tells you that the main app or or a dependant module has been successfully loaded.

For your app this is followed by 'Symbols loaded'. This means that the debugger can show the source code and variable contents when execution is stopped (e.g. at a break point).

Because the symbols for the DLLs are not loaded, the debugger can only show assembly code when stepping into the code of those DLLs.

To debug your code, set a break point on some source line (right click - Breakpoint - Insert) and start debugging (F5). Then use Step Over (F10) and Step Into (F11).
