A few manual extra steps should be done for the best debugging experience.\r\n[wiki:Installation Read more...]\r\n\r\n== Updating ==\r\n\r\nIf you are updating from a previous version of cv2pdb, please make sure that the versions of cv2pdb.exe, dviewhelper.dll and the snippets in autoexp.dat are compatible with each other. The easy way is to take them from the same package.\r\n \r\n== Usage ==\r\n\r\nThe executable is a command line program, that creates a PDB file from the !CodeView debug information found in the executable to debug.
