  • it only has symbols for the included drivers in Windows. Later driver updates don't get symbols from Symbol server.

  • Thanks Andre ! I just was curious to know about it. Since other vendors like Mozilla, chrome etc. has their own Symbol servers i though Microsoft is not allowed to save them due to licensing issues.
