NVidia symbol server for Windows binaries

Microsoft’s debugger stores symbols in sidecar files separate from the executable. They are stored on the Microsoft Symbol Server. For third party symbols, things are not as good. NVidia has improved things for their drivers, though:

AFAIK, Mozilla was the first open source project to setup a symbol server:

NVIDIA to stop 32-bit driver development

http://gfxspeak.com/2017/12/27/bye-says-nvidia/

By Kathleen Maher December 27, 2017
Bye-bye 32, says Nvidia

In a no frills, no hoopla, in a very un-Nvidia like fashion, the company announced that after Release 390, Nvidia will no longer release drivers for 32-bit operating systems for any GPU architecture. The company is currently shipping WHQL driver version 388.71 which suggests there will be a few more 32-bit drivers before the cutoff. Later driver release versions will not operate, nor install, on 32-bit operating systems. Driver enhancements, driver optimizations, and operating system features in driver versions after Release 390 will not be incorporated back into Release 390 or earlier versions. This impacts operating systems such as Microsoft Windows 7, Microsoft Windows 8/8.1, Microsoft Windows 10, Linux, and FreeBSD—applicable to operating systems running on x64 and x32 CPU architectures.

Hmm, I can’t find this info on the NVIDIA pr site:
