I have had a few emails from readers of my ActiveX Article in this months WindowsITPro Magazine all with the same question. That question is….
I have added the bp SHLWAPI!SHCoExtensionAllowed “db poi(esp+4);g” breakpoint in the windbg.exe application as instructed in your article, but I get an error that says:
Couldn’t resolve error at ‘SHLWAPI!SHCoExtensionAllowed “db poi(esp+4);g”‘
This is caused when the public symbols from Microsoft are not loading correctly. I was not very specific in my article about adding the symbols path in windbg.exe, so here is how.
- Open up windbg.exe
- Click File, Symbol File Path from the menu.
- Type SRV*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols in the window and click ok. (Note the SRV)
Then you can go about the rest of the article….. 🙂
