BG task > WWAHost crash: explore a HDMP of a JS app? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    For debug purpose, I show a toast notification whenever my background task is launched.

    About once in ten, immediately after this toast is shown, WER tells me the WWAHost has crashed and a report and a hdmp file can be sent.

    Sorry, it's in french... :)

    My question is: is there a way to explore a hdmp file of a WinJS application?

    I have few experience with WinDBG and I don't even know where to find the symbols for Win8 CP! Furthermore, I'm not sure that SOS.dll is useful for debugging a JS application...

    Has anyone tried WinDBG for a WinJS app hdmp?

    Thanks in advance!

  • Yes, I have looked at this and it's not something that is pleasant at this time, especially if you're not an experienced debugger.
