Title: WinDbg - Will this work as the EA Script Debugger
Post by: David Rains on March 29, 2019, 03:44:50 pm
"If you just need the Debugging Tools for Windows 10, and not Windows Driver Kit (WDK) for Windows 10 or Visual Studio 2017, you can install the debugging tools as a standalone component from the Windows SDK. In the SDK installation wizard, select Debugging Tools for Windows, and deselect all other components."
from (UPDATED LINK): https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-hardware/drivers/debugger/debugger-download-tools

WinDbg Preview is a new version of WinDbg with more modern visuals, faster windows, a full-fledged scripting experience, built with the extensible debugger data model front and center. WinDbg Preview is using the same underlying engine as WinDbg today, so all the commands, extensions, and workflows still work as they did before.

So do we know if this will work with EA scripting as the debugger?

I'm not sure.
I do know that Microsoft took down the old scripting debugger engine.
Luckily I still have a copy of it on my google drive: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5YX31GyMA64NUJsQnJiaVhLWlk (https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B5YX31GyMA64NUJsQnJiaVhLWlk)

Installing this will allow you to debug VBScript and Jscript scripts in EA.

From what I can see it looks like some low level debugger to debug windows itself, not something you can use for scripts.

Like a charm!!  Added to my karama debt and my EA download collection! (New Laptop, so still doing installs)... Having some fun with Python/nltk and NLP of requirement and engineering documents at work :); and well playing/learning with corpus of Holy Grail... keep getting sidetracked on quotes about swallows and coconuts...

"a full-fledged scripting experience" - gave me hope... Last time had to install MS Studio app and uninstall to get the script debugger to be retained... your link saved me a lot of trouble and uninstalls. Thanks
