Bug Validator provides functionality to track an application's execution history for Win32 programs running on Windows NT® 4.0, Windows 2000® and Windows XP. Bug Validator can also read and decode the encoded session logs created by Bug Validator, allowing bugs that only occur at customer sites to be analysed without compromising intellectual property contained in debugging symbols.
The execution history is displayed as a list, with the source code corresponding to any particular line shown in a window to the right.
There is no requirement to relink or recompile your application to use Bug Validator. All that is required is PDB files with debug information and/or MAP files with line number information (linker option /MAPINFO:LINES).
