WinDbg sosex unable to debug

Asked by At

I am trying to debug managed code. .exe file is build for x64

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Threading.Tasks;

namespace DebugTutorial
    class Program
        public static void Foo2()

        public static void Foo1()

        public static void Parent()

        static void Main(string[] args)

I am doing next commands:

The breakpoint could not be set because a breakpoint has already been specified for this source location.

If I place breakpoin with F9 hotkey I see next

Win32 error 0n998

Why? What is happening? How to debug .net with windbg?

.load ...\clr.dll is attempting to load the .NET framework as a plugin for WinDbg. That won't work. The .NET plugin for WinDbg is called SOS and you usually do .loadby sos clr. However, that should not matter much for the rest of the session.

First, you're using !mbp, which is used with source file and line number. However, you use it with module and method.

Second, even for !mbm, the parameters DebugTutorial Foo1 are incorrect. The format is module!namespace.class.method. Luckily you can use wildcards. Try !mbm *!*method

Third, IMHO you get a better feedback of whether your command works or not, if the .NET framework is already loaded and about jitting. Use sxe ld clrjit to achieve that.

So here we go:
