Debugging Certification Error with WinJS Application RRS feed

  • Question

  • All,  I'm hitting a "The crashes and hangs test detected the following errors:" error with the certification tool that I cannot repro under normal operation running my WinJS based app.  I've looked through various help and happened to find that the EventVwr shows errors in the Application log.  For instance:

    I tracked down a few .wers files as well but the seem to repeat the above.  I really want to take a look at the .dmp files but they appear to disappear as soon as the tool stops and I've not been able to capture them in real time ( are they even created? ).  Is there any way to run this test under the debugger?  This is blocking me from getting my app posted so any help would be much appreciated!

  • I believe you already checked this; but is your app also fine during suspend/resume/shutdown?

    Turn on the Debug Location toolbar (at VIEW > Toolbars > Debug Location) and start debugging with Suspend/Resume/Suspend and shutdown option changed.

    You can first verify your app that way to pass the test.


    Just added more check points.

    1. Ensure your Windows / Visual Stuidio / WACK are up to date.

    2. Ensure none of EXEs and DLLs in your app is built in debug mode.

    3. Check if your app loads/saves too much data or does a long task during app launch and suspend.

    4. You can try DebugDiag to get a dump; set rules for exception and AV, etc., and then run WACK. Since WER does not guarantee it 100% generate a dump for all cases, DebugDiag is worth a try.
