The Debugging Tools are essential for Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 developers that are looking to create apps and submit them to the Windows Store, free of serious bugs and glitches. Here’s more about it and where to download.

Debugging
in Windows 10 / 8.1, just like with any other operating system, means to find and reduce the number of bugs and defects, to make the app behave as expected. For that, developers have at their disposal the Debugging Tools set.

With the launch of the Windows 8.1 SDK, the  Debugging Tools has been made part of it, as this was one of the new features and updates brought by Microsoft.

However, if you’re interested only in the Debugging Tools for Windows 8.1, when installing the Windows 8.1 SDK, you can select only the box for Debugging Tools, leaving others unchecked. As far as we know, this is the single way to install the standalone Debugging Tools for Windows 8.1 component, as there are currently no individual download links for that.

What you can download, though, as a standalone file is the Windows Remote Debugging Client for Windows 8.1. You can use it to work remotely with developers from Microsoft by using the Kernel Debugger (KD).

Follow the links from below to download the Windows 8.1 SDK where you’ll need to check only the Debugging Tools for Windows 8.1, if you need that, and the Windows Remote Debugging Client for Windows 8.1.

Analyzing crash dumps, examining the CPU registers as code executes, debugging kernel and user mode code, all have been made possible with the Windows Debugger (WinDbg) for Windows 10 developers.

A new version of WinDbg was released in 2017 for Windows 10 developers and came with more modern visuals, faster windows, a full-fledged scripting experience, built with the extensible debugger data model front and center.
