Windbg Download

Previously Windbg was available separately to download. But for the latest versions, Microsoft keeps it as part of Windows SDK. Please find the download links below.

Windows 10

The latest version of Windbg for Windows 7 can be downloaded from the link https://developer.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/downloads/windows-10-sdk

Windows 7

Windows 7 SDK can be downloaded from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=8279 target=”_blank”

Download installers from the above links. Note that this does not download the whole SDK, it’s just an installer. Once you run the file, you can select which tools you would like to be downloaded. If you are interested only in Windbg, you can exclude everything else and only select ‘Debugging tools’ under ‘Common Utilities’

The above package installs windbg 6.12 version. If you want to quick install windbg, you can go for older version(6.11) which can be downloaded from
the link given at the end of this post.

Once you do the installation, you can find the program in Start Menu -> All Programs -> Debugging Tools for Windows -> Windbg

Windows 8.1

Download link: //msdn.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/desktop/bg162891.aspx
The setup instructions are same as mentioned above for Windows 7.

    The web installer for 7.1 fails for me. Worse than simply failing, it actually says it was successful, but doesn’t install anything at all. Apparently this is a common issue and only downloading the full ISO (which I am yet to find) fixes the problem.

      I have today downloaded the installer for Windows 7.1 SDK from the above link and successfully installed Windbg.

      It’s a late reply, but for the benefit of others who see the same issue, did you make sure that you installed ‘Debugging tools for Windows’ under ‘Common Utilities’ and NOT ‘Debugging tools’ under ‘Redistributable packages’.

      In case someone else faces this too, you can download the DVD iso from Microsoft, mount it, open the image contents, browse to Setup/folder_of_the_component_you_need and install it directly from there with the corresponding .msi

      The joined installer indeed is broken somehow.
