Problem using gdb with Microsoft .exe

I'm trying to debug a program that was built using the Microsoft C++ compiler.  I built the exe to include debug info.  

Is it possible to use gdb to debug this program?
I can't get gdb to load the symbols properly.  Am I missing something or is this just not possible.

When I build the program using gcc, I have no trouble debugging.
