Debugging / Symbols for win64 binary
« on: October 18, 2019, 08:47:19 PM »
I have figured out how to generate x64 binaries on Windows.  I am making use of both nasm and GoLink to do so.  Here's a quick example:

Code: [Select]
nasm -f win64 test.asm -o test.obj
golink /entry:main test.obj /console

This is straight forward and works great.  I've been using "x64dbg" to debug.  However, it isn't picking up the symbols.  I realized this and tried to check
 for NASM's debugger symbol support.  For "win64" it considers it just a binary, there is no support.  Am I missing something?  It seems that
NASM is really good for Windows based assembly development.  I'd hate to not be able to debug properly due to this missing functionality.

Have you tried the -g switch?
