Troubles debugging QL XL addin: No Symbols Have Been Loaded

aborodya
Hi,

Trying to debug the addin functionality per http://quantlib.org/quantlibxl/faq.html#faq_item_debugexcel and can't get it to work : none of my breakpoints are working  - "The breakpoint will not currently be hit. No symbols have been loaded for this document". Tried to set breakpoints both in QuantLib and QuantLibXLStatic. Tried both Dynamic and Static Debug configurations.

Any  ideas on how to get this to work would be greatly appreciated!

The .pdb debug symbol files generated by Visual Studio contain a unique hash that must match the corresponding .dll or .exe. Which means they must come from the same build. Identical inputs (source code, compile flags, link flags) are not sufficient, the .dll, .exe or .xlls must be from the same actual build. Since Visual Studio generated the .pdbs it should know where to find them. 

An alternate approach to that outlined in the link you gave is to set excel.exe as the launch command for the debug session in the project that builds the .xll. Look in project properties, Debugging/Command. That way you can launch the whole debug session from inside VS, instead of launching excel from outside, then attaching to an already running process.

Good luck!

Cheers
John
