SymCleanup function

Deallocates all resources associated with the process handle.

Syntax

BOOL IMAGEAPI SymCleanup(
  HANDLE hProcess
);

Parameters

hProcess

A handle to the process that was originally 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.

Remarks

This function frees all resources associated with the process handle. Failure to call this function causes memory and resource leaks in the calling application

All DbgHelp functions, such as this one, are single threaded. Therefore, calls from more than one thread to this function will likely result in unexpected behavior or memory corruption. To avoid this, call SymInitialize only when your process starts and SymCleanup only when your process ends. It is not necessary for each thread in the process to call these functions.

Examples

For an example, see Terminating the Symbol Handler.
