    cannot find pdb file/injection of runtime library failed

    Dear all,
    My program works fine. When I start Visual Studio 2010's profiler (through the wizard) I get a messagebox: "Could not launch <app.exe>. Injection of runtime library failed." When not using the profiler the Debug Output window tells me that:
    Code:
    'HelloWorld.exe': Loaded 'C:\Windows\System32\igdumd32.dll', Cannot find or open the PDB file
    
    This happens when my program calls
    Code:
    Direct3DCreate9(D3D_SDK_VERSION)
    So, I think this has something to do with directx9. The location of igdumd32.dll is in c:/drivers/intel/vga and I have an Intel 945 Express Chipset Family Card. Is there a place to get a pdb for this igdumd32.dll? or should I switch to using directx 8 functions for me to be able to use the VS2010-profiler?

    PDB are for debug only. They are not used in release mode which is the mode your video card manuf. released their drivers in. Profiling Direct3D through MSVS is not a good idea. For accurate profiling and how to profile Direct3D check the SDK. There is an entire section devoted to profiling Direct3D applications.
