Debugging COM+ Processes

Hi,

I am trying to debug a ServicedComponent assembly in
COM+. When I attach to the process, I get no error. When I
set the breakpoint, I get a question mark symbol in the
breakpoint with the following message: "The breakpoint
will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for
this document." As a matter of fact, it does not break!
The framework is 1.1 running on Windows 2003 Server.

Note: It used to work on Windows 2000.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Hi Francois,

Thanks for your post. Generally speaking, this error indicates that the
debugger cannot find the symbol file for the component. I'd like to copy
the corresponding .pdb from the bin directory to the directory where your
DLL locates.

I am standing by for your result.

Have a nice day!

Yes, I know. But the DLL is in the GAC. I cannot put pdb
file in the GAC.

Hi Francois,

Thanks for your update. Since the DLL is in GAC, I'd like you take a look
at the following thread which lists the directories the debugger will
search for the PDB file.

In addition, you can also use filemon to check it yourself.

Please let me know the result.

That's it! The .pdb file must be in Windows\Symbos\Dll.

Thanks.
