It doesn't -- it finds them from the .pdb files. But as long as you
have these next to the .exes (or in your symbol path, though this is
less common for things you've built yourself) then it works.

This is also how you can step into code compiled in one solution while
debugging another, which can be handy to keep the number of projects in
a solution manageable, particularly for libraries that don't change often.
