Using the Modules Window

The Modules window lists the modules (DLLs and EXEs) used by your program and shows relevant information for each.

Note   This feature is not available for SQL or script debugging.

To display the Modules window

  • From the Debug menu, choose Windows and click Modules. (The debugger must be running or in break mode.)

By default, the Modules window sorts modules by load order. You can choose to sort by any column, however.

To sort by any column

  • Click the button at the top of the column.

When you are debugging multiple processes, you can choose to display modules for all processes or only the active process.

To display modules for all processes

  • Right-click in the Modules window and select Show Modules for all programs from the shortcut menu.

To display modules for the active process only

  • Right-click in the Modules window and clear Show Modules for all programs from the shortcut menu.

You can select a module in the Modules window and reload symbols for that module using the context menu.

To reload symbols for a function

  • In the Modules window, right-click on the module whose symbols you want to reload and choose Reload Symbols from the shortcut menu.
Note   You can use the Reload Symbols dialog box <Project> Property Pages dialog box to specify a symbol server that automatically downloads the proper symbols for debugging your Visual Studio .NET project. For details, see Using a Symbol Server.
