Writing New Debugger Extensions

You can create your own debugging commands by writing an extension DLL. For example, you might want to write a command to display a complex data structure, or a command that will stop and start the target depending on the value of certain variables or memory locations.

There are two different types of debugger extensions:

  • DbgEng extensions. These are based on the prototypes in the dbgeng.h header file, and also those in the wdbgexts.h header file.

  • WdbgExts extensions. These are based on the prototypes in the wdbgexts.h header file alone.

For information about how to write debugger extensions, see Writing DbgEng Extensions and Writing WdbgExts Extensions.
