.dbg File Extension

Developer: Dr. Bjarne Stroustrup
File type: C++ Symbolic Debugging Information File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .dbg. Files with the file extension .dbg can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .dbg files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .dbg file?

A C++ symbolic debugging information file is used by many debugging applications that were developed to test source code functionalities. These C++ debugging tools can highlight errors or bugs it could encounter during code functionality simulation. These bugs and errors are dumped into a debugging log file that is encoded in text formatting specifications. These log files can then be used by developers to correct the errors and bugs by using the data stored in these log files as reference data. The content of a C++ symbolic debugging information file is integrated with encoding standards used to store these pieces of data in the DBG file format. Affixed with the .dbg extension, a C++ symbolic debugging information file can pinpoint the exact positions of particular lines of code that failed to initialize or could be the cause of an error encountered during a test simulation.

how to open a .dbg file?

Launch a .dbg file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .dbg file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .dbg files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .dbg file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .dbg file will open the correct application.

Embarcadero C++Builder

Embarcadero C++Builder

Embarcadero C++ is a software used for creating application for Window XP, Vista, Window7 and Even Window 8. This software may also create application for Mac OS X Mountain Lion, Surface Pro, Retina displays and Slates are also included, all this will be under C++ codebase. The software allows the user to develop application for Windows and gives no problem in Compiling in a Mac machine with its Visual Integrated Development Environment (IDE) and numerous components which are available for the convenience of the developer. The software provides the user with Metropolis User Interface which makes the developer create new app for Windows 8 user interface style including the enablement of the touch system, the live title support, the components of the tablet sensors, and as well as the x 86 PC running Windows 8. This software runs in Window server 2008, Vista (SP2), Windows 7 (SP1)32-bit and 64-bit, Window 8 (32-bit and 64-bit). The Personal Computer running Windows should connected to Mac OS 10.8 for developing OS X applications.


FoxPro, a procedural programming language and database management system created by Fox Software, has been widely used even before it was turned over to Visual FoxPro. It still enjoys a strong support from its community of programmers and users up to this day. FoxPro versions 2.0, 2.5 and 2.6 are compatible with Mac, DOS and Windows 3.1 to XP. Version 2.6 is compatible also with Linux and Free BSD, SCO Unix and Windows 2000. FoxPro 2 used Rushmore, an optimizing engine that used indices to look for matching expressions, to accelerate data updating and data retrieval. FoxPro 2 was built originally on Watcom C++ that has its own extensor making it the most up-to-date technology at that time. It could access expanded and extended memory making it able to utilize almost all available RAM [DOS]. If HIMEM.SYS is not loaded, FoxPro enabled a mechanism of using interrupts when extended memory driver is absent. File formats associated with FoxPro: ACT [FoxPro Documenting Wizard Action Diagram], APP [FoxPro Generated Application], DBC [FoxPro Database], DBF [Database File], DBF [FoxPro Table], DBG [FoxPro Debugger Configuration], DBT [Database Text File], DCT [FoxPro Database Memo], DCX[FoxPro Database Index], ERR [FoxPro Compilation Error], FKY [FoxPro Macro], FLL [FoxPro Dynamic Link Library], FMT [Foxpro Format File], FPT [FoxPro Table Memo], FRT [FoxPro Report Memo], FRX [FoxPro Report], FXP [FoxPro Compiled Program], LBT [FoxPro Labeled Memo], LBX [FoxPro Label File], LST [FoxPro Documenting Wizard List], MEM [FoxPro Variable File], MNX [FoxPro Menu], MPR [FoxPro Generated Menu Program], MPX [FoxPro Compiled Menu Program], NDX [dBASE Index File], PJX [FoxPro Project], PJT [FoxPro Project Memo], QPR [FoxPro Generated Query Program], QPX [FoxPro Compiled Query Program], VUE [FoxPro 2.x View Settings], WIN [FoxPro Window Settings], TBK [FoxPro Memo Backup], SPR [FoxPro Generated Screen File], SCT [FoxPro Form Memo] and SCX [FoxPro Form].

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .dbg files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .dbg. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
