Hi, could I get a quick example of how to start a debug session outside of WinDBG (i.e. section 3.3 of the documentation)? I feel like I'm missing some initialization step because everything I'm trying seems to throw a main.BaseException. For example:

__main__.BaseException: Call IDebugClient::AttachKernel failed
