    pdb files

    When I try to load the symbol files (see attached screen shot), right click on the module I want to debug (eu_Login.exe in this case), select "Load Symbols" from the popup menu, browse to the location of the *.pdb files, and the IDE gives me the error "The symbol file EU_Login.pdb does not match the module.".

    Anyone know how to resolve this problem?

    Thanks

    Find pdb file that DOES match your exe module?

    but that is the correct one. There is only one on my computer's file system.

    Do they have the same timestamp?
    Do you build this module?
    How do you know that this pdb matches your exe?

    Thanks for your response. Yes, I do build the exe file, copy the exe to the smart device (an Intermec Mobile 5 wireless using Microsoft ActiveSync). I was hoping someone here has had similar experience, but obviously not. Thanks anyway.

    The only time this has happened to me, the PDB and EXE were indeed out of sync. IIRC, a "Rebuild All" fixed it.
