  • hi all,

    is there some api can be used to save dump file or other types of crash information in metro app, just like MiniDumpWriteDump function in desktop?

  • Hello,


    As far as I know, there is no direct API to create dump file in metro.

    Only these debug API we can used in metro



    Therefore, we need to use another way to create dumpfile.


    When you break in the Visual Studio debugger because of the access denied exception, go to task manager, details tab.  Find your application e.g. application1.exe, right click on it, and select create dump file.  There will be a dialog that tells you where Windows saved the file e.g. c:\users\yourname\appdata\local\temp\applicationname.dmp


    Best regards,
