Problems debugging DLL on Windows
« on: March 23, 2018, 01:02:23 pm »
I work on a system which has an EXE that loads a DLL. If I set a breakpoint in the EXE then start debugging, then all fine, however if I set in the DLL and then start debugging then the breakpoint is disabled.
The problem seems to be that the current implementation tries to set break points after loading the EXE and before starting execution, however it doesn't reprocess the breakpoints when a DLL is loaded.
Any chance that this can be added?

Using WinDbg debugging?  Sounds like it is not finding the PDB files for the dependent DLL.  I'll double-check to make sure, but I know it has worked in the past with dynamically loaded dll linkage.
