P38 has a half-pager comparison of the 2 main debuggers
^ MSVS – dev environment, with source code available
^ windbg – production environment. For post-coding, without source code.
** script/SQL debugging – only MSVS
P38 points out the free MSVS-express lacks certain debugging features. WinDBG is Completely free.
Q: does “windows debugger” mean windbg + minor tools?
–symbol files, symbol servers, *.pdb files
P54 – “public symbols” and the microsoft online public symbol server.
