This little utility was developed for my IDE project, to inspect various PDB files. It lists the symbols found in the file in a tree, and attempts to group them by type. Populating the entire view can be a little slow as it happens in the background, so have patience. I didn't manage to complete the integration of PDB files into my IDE tool, but this utility may still be useful to some.
To run the tool you'll need to have the Visual Studio 2008 runtime files installed.
If you wish to compile the source code, you'll also need to DIA SDK, which contains the Microsoft libraries for accessing the sparsely documented PDB file format. This library should come with your Visual Studio installation, and if you wish to manually install there is a redistributable named
vcredist_x86.exeamong the VS installation files that can be launched. The runtime libraries and the DIA SDK is also available here.
