SymRefreshModuleList Function

Refreshes the module list for the process.

BOOL WINAPI SymRefreshModuleList(
  __in          HANDLE hProcess



A handle to a process. This handle must have been previously passed to the SymInitialize function.

Return Value

If the function succeeds, the return value is TRUE.

If the function fails, the return value is FALSE. To retrieve extended error information, call GetLastError.


This function enumerates the loaded modules for the process and effectively calls the SymLoadModule64 function for each module. This same process is performed by SymInitialize if fInvadeProcess is TRUE.
