How can I use sendPdbs to automatically upload symbol files?

Many customers automate the upload of Windows symbols and executables using the BugSplat utility SendPdbs.exe.

Each build of your product that is used to send crash reports must have an exact set of matching exe/symbol files uploaded to BugSplat. Typically you will provide a unique BugSplat application name/version for each build.

Feel free to send symbols to BugSplat for every build on your build/integration server. There is no limit on the amount of symbols you can post to BugSplat. However, BugSplat will automatically remove unreferenced symbols in large symbol sets. If your database contains more than 5 gigabytes of symbol data, our cleanup algorithm will automatically remove symbols that haven't been referenced by a crash report in more than 90 days. Additionally, newly posted symbols not referenced by a crash report within 15 days will be removed.

Running sendPdbs.exe in a command window without any arguments show the following usage information:

USAGE: sendPdbs.exe /u USER /p PASSWORD /a APPNAME {/v VERSION | /l LIBRARY} [/b DATABASE] [[/s] [/e] /d PATH /f FILESPEC1] | [/r]]

        This utility searches your build tree for symbol files
        and uploads them to the BugSplat server.  Note you can also
        create a zip containing your symbol files and manually post
        it to www.bugsplat.com/symbols

        Required parameters:
         /u USER      BugSplat username
         /p PWD       BugSplat password
         /a APPNAME   AppName for the PDB symbol files (e.g. MyApp)
         /v VERSION   Version number of AppName (e.g. /v 1.0), required if /l not set
         /l LIBRARY   Library from which to extract version info (e.g. /l app.exe), required if /v not set

        For accounts using multiple databases, you should add the optional database parameter:
         /b DATABASE  BugSplat database (default is users current database)

        Then use either the following parameters:
         /s           Search subdirectories, optional
         /d PATH      Folder to search (e.g. /d "C:\Folder")
         /f FILE      Filespec to search (e.g. /f "*.pdb;MyApp.exe")
         /c RETRIES   Number of retries to attempt each upload. Optional, defaults to 4.
        
        Or use the following single parameter:
         /r           Remove symbols from server
