I am unable to use this tool at all

I read the readme,


I installed the Debugging tools SDK 7 for 2003 since I am on a 2003 server

I installed Powershell v2

I did this:

   3. Run the following command (referencing your .NET 2.0 install directory):
      C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe {path to directory from #2}\PSSymbolStore.dll

and it reported successful


when I try to run SymbolManager.exe it throws a debug window


and when I try to do the Add-PSSnapin command in Powershell it says the snapin is no good.

Fix is due to my 2003 R2 being x64 i had to run this to get it to work:

:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v2.0.50727\installutil.exe {path to directory from #2}\PSSymbolStore.dll


everything else fell into place
