Any special trick to get the symbols to download correctly. I have a donate key and have never had a problem updating until today after install the Nov Rollup update.

 

I can only suggest trying again.  I've had test systems where I've had to restart DWM a number of times before the symbols loaded correctly.  I think the problem must be that with all the updates Microsoft's servers are probably becoming overwhelmed.  I got the update when it was not very old and probably not that many people were hitting the servers yet.  That being said, post the relevant portions of your debug.log file to make sure something else is not going wrong.

 

I think I have to adapt to restart dwm.exe every boot :-(

 

BigMuscle, I suggest that if you want to change your software to restart DWM, that you please do it 1) only if you detect hybrid boot and 2) only on a particular setting in the registry (which may be the default).  As someone who has no need for the restart (because of having disabled hybrid boot, which honestly is the REAL solution here), I know I would not appreciate it if DWM were restarted forcibly when it didn't need to be.

I can confirm this too. The console window comes up saying that it is downloading symbols, but the download breaks before reaching 100%. In short, the symbols are not being downloaded correctly/fully.

 

As @noelc states above, this could be a temporary issue with MS' servers.

Ok, in that case then you can use SymChk then to download the 3 files:

symchk /r C:\AeroGlass /s SRV*c:\symbols\*http://msdl.microsoft.com/download/symbols

Or just download all the symbols and extract the files you need:
