Visual Studio 2012 and WinDbg Integration

| Sunday, June 10, 2012
Microsoft has always provided two primary debugging experience: Visual Studio and Debugging Tools for Windows (a.k.a WinDbg).

Visual Studio on the other hand was a very user friendly type of debugger but not always suited for low level type of debugging. Fortunately, with the introduction of Visual Studio 2012 (beta) both experiences are now folded into the Visual Studio debugger.

To start using the powerful WinDbg commands and extensions in Visual Studio 2012 it requires that you install the WDK on top of Visual Studio 2012. Once the install is completed you will notice a new transport as shown below:
