    Who are the other companies (besides Microsoft) who have a public symbol store? It would be nice to publish such a list on the blog, so there’s a single location where crush dump analysts who encounter foreign code in call stacks can see if there’s a relevant third-party symbol store for them to utilize while reviewing the memory dump.

    From my experience, the lack of public symbols is mostly a problem when it comes to third-party drivers. These very rarely have PDBs (with the notable exception of a network driver I encountered once, whose .CAB included not just a .PDB, but complete *private* symbols as well). Another big offender is anti-virus products. Their file-system filter drivers involve themselves in various I/O call stacks, but without symbols available they often mess up the stack backtrace and debugging interactions with them can be quite a chore.

    I totally agree, for example, I would appreciate if Sun publishes the symbols for their JVM. Also MS should make Office symbols available as well as OS :-)

    Mozilla have a symbol server at http://symbols.mozilla.org/firefox for debugging Firefox.
    Google have a symbol server at http://build.chromium.org/buildbot/symsrv for debugging Chrome.
    Note that these symbol servers contain private symbols, which can be quite large.

    Dmitry, is it possible to ask Citrix to also provide symbols for the Citrix Clients (wfica.ocx and others)?
