    Wow, it is extremely slow to load an application with windows debug symbols?

    I dumped all symbols into C:\Windows\Symbols folder,
    It takes more than 2 minutes to load an application which really surprises me.
    Why and when should I use those symbols?
    Thanks

    It may take 30 minutes or more... You are lucky with two minutes. Windows debug symbols are required for some special cases, for example, remote debugging, post-mortem debugging, kernel mode debugging. Don't enable this feature unless you really need it.
