Defining the Environment Variable __NT_SYMBOL_PATH The Microsoft documentation is somewhat unclear about which directory path must be assigned to the _NT_SYMBOL_PATH variable. The kernel-mode debugging chapters of the DDK say that the symbols subdirectory has to be included, yielding a value of d: \winnt\symbols or equivalent. dll library, the symbol path setup is described a bit differently: "The library uses the symbol search path to locate debug symbols ( . dbg f lie) for . dll, . exe, and .

Dbg and . pdb files from the SYMBOLS . CAB archive to various subdirectories of the system's symbol root, which is named %systemroot% \Symbols by default. The %systemroot% token symbolizes the value of the environment variable systemroot, indicating the installation directory of the Windows 2000 system. In the example below, it is the D : \WINNT directory. On startup, the Windows 2000 Kernel Debugger will try to locate the symbol files by evaluating the environment variable _NT_SYMBOL_PATH (note the leading underscore), so it is a good idea to define this variable right now.

Therefore, I will discuss in detail some of the commands that are most useful for the exploration of Windows 2000 internals. u: Unassemble Machine Code You have already used the u command after starting the Kernel Debugger to check whether the loaded crash dump file is OK. The u command has three forms: 1. u disassembles eight machine instructions, starting at address .
