Process dmps for application not generating on crash, other application do. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello. We develop an application for data management. Like all apps, now and then we crash. Our software, once installed, edits the registry so that process dmps will be saved in our install directory

    Registry looks like this:

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps]
    "DumpType"=dword:00000002
    "DumpCount"=dword:00000002
    "DumpFolder"="C:\\[InstallDirectory]\\"

    99% of the time when our app crashes, it will generate a dump in the location specified. However, there have been a couple sites recently where our application just will not generate a dmp on a crash. Strangely, there are other dmp files in that location from other processes. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Regards,

    Bill
