SymSetSearchPath function

Sets the search path for the specified process.

Syntax


BOOL WINAPI SymSetSearchPath(
  _In_      HANDLE hProcess,
  _In_opt_  PCTSTR SearchPath
);

Parameters

hProcess [in]

A handle to the process that was originally passed to the SymInitialize function.

SearchPath [in, optional]

The symbol search path. The string can contain multiple paths separated by semicolons.

Return value

If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE.

If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. To retrieve extended error information, call GetLastError.

Remarks

The symbol search path can be changed any number of times while the library is in use by an application. The change affects all future calls to the symbol handler.

To get the current search path, call the SymGetSearchPath function.
