Querying the .pdb File

Your DIA application uses the following general steps to obtain details about the various symbols, objects, and data elements within an executable image.

To query the .pdb file

  1. Acquire a data source by creating an IDiaDataSource interface.
  2. Call IDiaDataSource::openSession to open an IDiaSession.
  3. Use the methods in IDiaSession to query for the symbols in the data source.
  4. Use the IDiaEnum* interfaces to enumerate and scan through the symbols or other elements of debug information.
