SymGetEx is an addition to Visual Studio 6.0, which allows Visual C++ debugger to automatically download symbols from symbol servers. With automatic symbol server support, it is easy to keep system symbols up-to-date, regardless of the number of system updates and hotfixes installed on the computer. In turn, good symbols for system DLLs help you get complete and informative call stacks when debugging your applications. In the process of downloading symbols, SymGetEx provides detailed progress reports, which help to troubleshoot network failures and various symbol server issues. SymGetEx also allows to reduce unnecessary network traffic by maintaining the list of modules whose symbols should not be downloaded from the symbol server (exclusion list). SymGetEx allows to enable or disable symbol server access on the fly, ensuring that the debugger uses symbol server only when it is really needed, and does not consume computing resources at other times.
