Dump Requirements and Limitations

The machine on which you debug the dump must have access to the binaries for the program and the PDB files. Visual Studio can cope with missing binaries for some modules, however, as long as it has enough modules to generate valid call stacks. The message "No matching binary found" appears in the Modules window. (For more information, see Dump Module Loading.)

For a minidump saved with heap, Visual Studio can load the symbols even if the application binary is not found. Minidumps saved without the heap need to find the binary to load symbols.
