Purpose of nydus.dll and Availability of Debugging Symbols

Description : I’m troubleshooting a customer-reported crash in the Zoom Desktop Client for Windows and discovered crash dumps in the client’s log folders that indicate an access violation when nydus.dll tries to enter a critical section. This DLL also seems to be included with the Meeting SDK when I downloaded version, and I’m trying to get some general information about what this library does and how to interpret stack traces involving it (like public symbols for use in debuggers like WinDbg).

I’m not actually writing an application that uses the Meeting SDK, but thought the SDK might contain some useful information for troubleshooting, since the Zoom Desktop Client might use it internally.

SDK Version : nydus.dll is showing version

Reproducible Steps : Not sure yet; this is based on customer testimony.
