Provides cmdlets for setting up symbol servers and other
functionality related to debugging and performance tuning.
This module makes setting up symbol servers and source server debugging
functionality easier to control for Visual Studio 2010 through 2015
and WinDBG. Setting up a development machine for symbol server
access is more difficult than it needs to be but no more.
You can have any combination of Visual Studio 2010 through 2015, and
WinDBG on the computer for these cmdlets to work.
These cmdlets had been originally developed as PowerShell scripts by John
Robbins and released on his blog. This module combines all the seperate
scripts to make everything easier to manage.
If you have any questions, suggestions, or bug reports, please contact John
