I'm not subscribing to jamboost and yahoo groups doesn't like spam, so
you'll have to forward my reply.
There are a number of ways the debugger can find the pdb. The first is
by checking the image, the filename is embedded in each image (link
-dump -all, search for "Debug Directories" and you'll see it.)
There are other methods depending on which debugger. There is a symbol
path, set as an environment variable in windbg, or through options in
VS7 (not sure about VC6.)
