What do I have wrong in setting up this pipe?


  • To whom it may concern,

    I have been trying to setup Windbg to work with Windows virtual XP MODE.

    I am using com1 and the The SETTING before Windows XP Mode starts is:

    button checked for Named pipe

    name of pipe string is: \\.\pipe\com_1

    Boot.ini file has options set for: /debug /debugport=com1 /baudrate=115200

    When running Windows XP Mode I am attempting to connect the com1 by using this instruction:

    windbg -y -k com:pipe,port=\\Windows XP Mode\pipe\com_1,resets=0,reconnect

    After executing that command I get this error:

    Could not create process 'com:pipe,port=\\Windows XP Mode\pipe\com_1,resets=0,reconnect' , Win32 error On2

    The system cannot find the file specified.

    What do I have wrong with that command?

    Thank you for your help.

  • Hi,

    The debugger runs well when I remote debug a normal virtual machine. Please try remote debug a normal virtual machine other than a virtual XP mode to isolate the issue. If the error still occurs, it indicates the basic configuration is incorrect; If the error doesn't occur, then the issue is reated to the virtual XP mode.
