I'm unable to start managed minidump debugging using Visual Studio 2010 with SP1 applied. 

The following message is logged to the Debug section of the Output window in Visual Studio:

Managed Minidump Debugging: The debugger was unable to find or download version 4.00.30319.1 of 'mscordbi.dll'.

My appologies on the delay. As "thealexdresko" pointed out below, it shouldn't have been so hard to get this working. Unfortunately it did. Sorry about that.

It should be working now.

In my case the dump comes from an Azure server, so I cannot log in and grab the files.

The suggested workaround does its job in my case...

Awwwww, I was SO hoping to show our developers a new technique for debugging customer issues with our applications, but can't because of this issue. How hard can it really be to add "a few files" to the public symbol server?

I'm experiencing this issue, and the suggested workaround below doesn't work for me.

Thanks for reporting this issue to us. It appears that a few files which should be present on the public symbol server haven't gotten there yet and we are working to resolve this as soon as possible. Once the files are available I anticipate the issue will vanish. Apologies for the inconvenience. In the meantime this workaround may get you up and running more quickly:

1) Log on to the machine which produced the dump (or any machine that has the v4.0 RTM version, 4.0.30319.1, of .Net Framework installed).
2) Collect the following files:
3) Share or copy those files so they are accesible to the machine where VS SP1 is running
4) From VS, add the path to those files in your symbol path

Hope this helps,

I'm experiensing this problem too. My process (64bit) has been dumped from Win2k3 R2 machine with CLR 4.0. My debugging machine is Win7 64, Visual Studio 2010 SP1.
