      You cannot have too much help when it comes to investigating more subtle bugs, so any extra support is welcome. Come hear about a few brand new tools, and get some ideas that will turn your next debugging session from being excruciatingly painful to ... well—and let's be honest here—bearable. We talk about less mainstream but nonetheless very useful methods for uncovering bugs on both Windows and Xbox 360, including using alternate debuggers like WinDBG and kd, using a symbol server to make it easier to deal with multiple versions of your game, catching elusive bugs using the AppVerifier. We end the talk by discussing the present and future of investigating tricky multithreading issues with the newly introduced multithread debugging window in Visual Studio.
