Hello, today I ran into the problem that I can’t download symbols for any version of bootmgfw.efi, although they loaded normally earlier, did Microsoft remove the symbols for this file on purpose or is this some sort of a bug?

    Hello there,

    Can you share the exact error message you are getting?

    Symbol files make it easier to debug your code. The easiest way to get Windows symbols is to use the Microsoft public symbol server. The symbol server makes symbols available to your debugging tools as needed. After a symbol file is downloaded from the symbol server, it's cached on the local computer for quick access.

    Hope this resolves your Query !!
