Troubleshooting No Symbolic Information


In the Sources window, the Intel Inspector displays no source code for any code locations in the problem set.


Intel Inspector cannot display source code for viewing and editing unless the application has symbols available.

If the Intel Inspector detects no symbols for a location, it sets the call stack and code pane to the first location where it can find symbols.

If the Intel Inspector cannot find any location in the call stack with symbols, it provides the module name and relative virtual address (RVA) for the location.

Possible Correction Strategies

  • When you compile and link an application on Windows* systems:

    • Enable the debug information compiler option.

    • Set the linker option to generate debug information.

  • Configure the project to search non-standard directories.

  • Copy the symbol files, such as *.pdb files, to a location where the Intel Inspector can find them.
