Problem with msdia80.dll

One of tool we’re using requires msdia80.dll file. Unfortunately this DLL is available only inside the VS2005 installation / redistributable pack. When you execute dump_syms.exe without this file, you will receive following message:

CoCreateInstance CLSID_DiaSource failed (msdia80.dll unregistered?)

One solution is to install Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package. Another way is download only msdia80.dll file and register it manually by using:

regsrv32 msdia80.dll
