Here's the steps to repro. Just installed IDA (free) v.7.0 on a brand-new installation of Windows 10 (x64) in a VM:
Then loaded a test PE file and started debugging it (using
Local Windows Debugger):
So now I want to load symbols from the Microsoft server, say for
ntdll.dll (or any other Windows module for that matter):
This fails with the following message in the output window:
DWARF: Cannot determine location of DWARF info for "C:\Windows\System32\ntdll.dll". Could not load debug info for module: "C:\Windows\System32\ntdll.dll"
Any idea what am I doing wrong?
