Strange Bundle: WDK & Debugging Tools

March 3, 2010

Microsoft has released an update Windows Driver Kit (WDK) a few days ago, but with a new twist: The Debugging Tools for Windows are now bundled with the WDK and are no longer available as a free (and easy) download. The WDK is only available to MSDN subscribers and via the Microsoft Connect web site.

This doesn’t make sense to me. Although WinDbg and friends are essential in the device driver world, they are just as important in the user mode world.

I hope Microsoft reverts this decision and will once again allow free and easy download of the Debugging Tools For Windows. I think it’s a must.
