Message - 'DBGHELP.DLL not found.'

Applies to AQTime 8.81, last modified on November 27, 2020

Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 and Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 can generate debug info in the PDB format and store it as an external .pdb file. PDB files are supposed to be accessed through a special Microsoft DLL, DBGHELP.dll. It is part of your AQTime installation, and you will need it to profile VC++ and VB applications that use PDB files for their debug info. If you do not have this DLL installed, this message is displayed.

To solve the problem, make sure the DLL is in the AQTime folder. If this does not help, please reinstall AQTime. You can also download the DLL for free from the Microsoft web site: http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/default.mspx. (Currently, AQTime uses DBGHELP.dll ver. 6.12.2.633).

There are several other Microsoft sources for the DLL (perhaps in a different version):

  • Platform SDK (MSDN CD and web site)
  • Windows 2000 DDK (MSDN CD and web site)
  • Windows 2000 Resource Kits (CD and web site)
  • Windows 2000 operating system CDs (\support subfolder)
