How to analyze a dump file from a Delphi DLL file?
I'm an escalation engineer on a product which use both C# and Delphi 2006 code.
But when the issue is a Delphi memory usage, EurekaLog doesn't give enough information to fix the issue, and the only thing I have for debug it is a full memory dump file.
I cannot (or I don't know how to) load the symbol file in WinDbg, because it is a .map file and not a .pdb file.
So my questions are:
How do I load the symbols from a .map file in WinDbg? (Converting .map to .pdb or other.)
Is there a tool to analyze the dump file for a Delphi application?
To convert from Map to Dbg symbols: - Get Map2Dbg.exe from http://code.google.com/p/map2dbg/ - Put Map2dbg in the same folder as YourApp.exe and its map file - Execute: map2dbg.exe YourApp.exe
You should get a YourApp.dbg file to use with Microsoft tools….
Besides tds2pdb (see my comment on map2dbg) you can also use my minidump viewer on Delphi programs: https://github.com/andremussche/asmprofiler/blob/master/Source/MiniDumpReader/ViewMinidump.exe.
Then you don't need to convert to .dbg or to .pdb, but it directly reads various Delphi debug files (.map, .tds/.td32, and j.dbg).
The latest version of cv2pdb tool can convert the DBGs made with map2dbg into PDB files.
So, if you've previously made your DBGs like this: map2dbg App.exe
Just add this command afterwards: cv2pdb -s. App.exe
-s. parameter is necessary to separate the method names from the class names with a point.
cv2pdb built for Win32 on the current sources can to downloaded from here.
