LocalDumps registry settings with VS 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to collect the crash dump for a winform based application (with managed and some unmanaged code) using the LocalDump registry key.
    But for some reason, the dumps are always getting collected at C:\Users\XXX\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportQueue and never at the location specified by DumpFolder.

    Enviornment details:
     VS 2010 with .net 4
     Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2

    Registry keys:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\

    DumpFolder              C:\test

    DumpCount               10

    DumpType                 2

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\AcDebug\Auto = 0

    I know that LocalDumps is not supported for managed application in .net framework 3.5.

    Am I missing something here?
