start debugger

29 May 2017, 16:40


I am running process hacker 2.39.124 on a windows 10 and my problem is to start the debugger via right-mouse-klick from the process window. I always
receive the message "Unable to locate the debugger." In the Symbols-tab of the options window I put the folder C:\Symbols\Windows Kits\8.1\Debuggers\x64\
into the first field to locate the file DbgHelp.dll. The folder exists and the dll really resides in this folder. The field for the search path is filled with
SRV*C:\Symbols* .
Could you please help me. Thank you very much.

I know for Win10 Your needed dbghelp.dll on Windows 10 Platform SDK. My archive included./DLL/readme.txt:
Please, copy this dbghelp.dll to Process Hacker folder (only if you system
not installed Microsoft Debugging Tools for Windows and select this location
in to "Options -> Symbol -> Dbghelp dll patch -> Browse…" button.

Use for any OS DLL files location on root dir:

Windows XP/2003/Vista/7/2008 - ./DLL/SDK v7.1/
Windows 8/8.1/2012 - ./DLL/SDK v8.1/
Windows 10/2016 before version 1607 - ./SDK v10/
Windows 10/2016 neever version 1607 - ./SDK v10 RS1/
Windows 10/2016 neever 10.0.15063.137 - ./SDK v10 RS2/


For x86 OS please use only x86 copy dbghelp.dll, for x64 bit OS also use only
x64 copy dbghelp.dll!
and on my system have access to MS VS and no problem for use Win7 + dbghelp.dll in ./DLL/SDK v7.1/ .
