The Symbols and Warnings tab allows you to set an assortment of symbol and diagnostic warning data.





Symbol loading - immediate or deferred


When converting program addresses to symbol names, you can choose immediate symbol loading, or defer loading until each symbol is needed.


Use deferred symbol loading instructionStep uses deferred symbol loading rather than 'all at once' (on by default)


Microsoft® recommend deferred symbol loading, claiming it is the fastest option. We give you the choice.



Symbol Reader Logging


Symbols are fetched from symbol servers using a helper process svlDbgHelpSymbolReader.exe. We log the command line and behaviour of this helper tool. This is displayed on the diagnostic tab.


If you wish the log files can be kept for later analysis. By default this option is turned off.

The path to the directory containing the log files is shown.


Clean instructionStep delete all svlDbgHelpSymbolReader log files
