Example text

Kernel debuggers are mainly used by device driver developers, but they can also be very useful when debugging user mode applications. Several scenarios described in this book make use of the kernel mode debuggers, even if the debugged code runs entirely in user mode. Much in the same way user mode debuggers can load user mode dumps, a kernel debugger can load kernel mode dumps and perform offline debugging of an existing system or a postmortem analysis of the bug checks. exe. exe (KD) is the kernel mode character-based debugger.

Note that this might cause problems in the application since logging requires I/O that is performed during the execution of the DllMain code path. To get a brief description of each test setting, you can hover over the test setting to open up a balloon tip. The balloon tip will also tell you whether a debugger is required to see the results of the tests. To get more details or for configuration settings for each test setting, you can right-click on the test setting and choose from one of two options.

I controls options on a per-image basis (analogous to the Image File tab in GUI mode). -p controls pageheap options (analogous to the Verifier tab in GUI mode). Each of the preceding switches can either display the current settings for the particular switch or modify the settings according to the flags specified. exe) without the flags. If you want to enable the settings, the flags can be specified as either a hexadecimal number or an abbreviation that represents the gflags option. 2 shows the available abbreviations.
