Don't see symbols from .pdb

TBP isn't showing symbols even though .pdb path is in Debug File Search Paths. How do I get this to work?

I am attempting TBP on a .exe under WinXP64. If I use Express mode, I can launch my app and profile successfully.

What I want to do now is take samples while the pgm is already running. I managed this by using Normal mode and leaving the "Launch" box blank. CA took samples, and displayed the results, but in my app, the symbols are missing ("NO SYMBOL").

The .pdb file is in the same directory as the .exe. I used the Tools/CodeAnalysst options/Directories tab to add the directory of the .pdb (and .exe) to Debug File Search Paths. The source (all C++) is in a different directory, shown in the Additional Source Dir box.

How can I get CA to read my symbols for this kind of sampling?
