Problem w/ mysqldump

I got essentially the same printout. There were the following, among many
others:
mysqldump.exe
mysqldump.pdb
What's a *.pdb file? Don't know it matters. If there were just some darn way
to know where that daggone database is, I could copy it and move it to
another machine.
TIA,
V
