BinDbg is a Binary Ninja plugin that syncs WinDbg to Binja to create a fusion of dynamic and static analyses. It was primarily written to improve the Windows experience for Binja debugger integrations.
- Start and stop WinDbg directly in Binja
- Control debugger execution and IP
- Set and delete breakpoints
- Set process arguments
- Branch decision highlighting
- vtable resolution and (rough) type identification
- ASLR support

Likely full of bugs and oversights; issues and PR's welcomed :)
git clone https://github.com/kukfa/bindbg.git within your Binary Ninja plugins folder (
%APPDATA%\Binary Ninja\plugins), and install WinDbg via the Windows SDK for your version of Windows.
The following pip dependencies are required:
- pykd (with bootstrapper)
I recommend installing these on the system's native Python installation, then adding the
site-packages folder to the
PYTHONPATH environment variable instead of trying to install everything in Binja's embedded Python.
__init__.py, modify the
pykd_path var to reflect the absolute path to
pykd.dll, and the
dbg_dir var to the
Debuggers folder containing the x86 and x64 WinDbg folders.
- Open target binary in Binja
- Tools or right-click -> Initialize Toolbar for this view
- Tools or right-click -> Set process arguments (if necessary)
- Click Go on the toolbar to launch WinDbg
- Open Memory/Registers windows in WinDbg as desired
- Control execution (run, break, step out, step in, step over) using the buttons in the toolbar
- Control IP (run to cursor, set IP) by right-clicking an instruction and selecting a command accordingly
- Set or delete breakpoints by right-clicking an instruction and selecting a command accordingly
- vtable calls and references will be automatically resolved as a Binja comment during execution
- Click Stop on the toolbar to stop debugging
Many ideas (and code) were borrowed from the following projects:
- snare's Binjatron
- Eric Hennenfent's Binja Dynamics
- Eric Hennenfent's Binja Toolbar (and thus NOPDev's BinjaDock)
