Unfortunately, it doesn't quite work that way. Under windows,
you need the .pdb saved as recompiling doesn't generate the same
thing. You can force WinDBG to use the result... and if the
binaries are exactly the same (no system include changes, no
compiler patches, nothing whatsoever different in the build
environment) it will probably work...

I've never had great results with anything except the exact
symbols. Here at the office we store our nightly symbols for
a week-- actually, we store the entire snapshotted build tree
for a week.

I'd suggest that eventually what we want is a symbol server that
that automatically ages the symbols.... then we set it up so we
keep nightly symbols for a week or two... and if you're using
nightlies, you're expected to upgrade at least that often :-)

Thanks,

Joseph
