no you dont!,

pdb is a file for when the program crashes it gets some extra infomation from it.
so far i know.
i get infomation from it without letting the program crash just open it with notepad or something.

PDB is a dump file, I opened it in a Hex Editor if you scroll down there is some strings.

... Please read, you don't even need the PDB file for anything but hacking really.





Next time Ask MSDN.

the pdb file contains all the functions and calls and there values that the corospoding program contains. as said above you can either hex it or use a program such as dia2dump to extract the informations.

the only real use for them is either hacking or reverse enginering.

the original point of the file is for vc++ debuger, the other point of the file is if you create dll's it gives you the functions and there values that you can call in your dll.
