SYMPTOMS

After you install security update 971091 for Visual Studio 2008, some DLLs may not be updated correctly. This security update correctly updates the PDB files that correspond to these DLL files. However, a mismatched set of PDB files and DLL files on the computer may cause debugging to fail.

WORKAROUND

When you run the new version of the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable after you install the update, the DLL files are updated, the PDB files and the DLL files are synchronized, and debugging works correctly.
