Unable to open Crash Dump (Windbg Win32 Error 0n87) (Dumpchk error 80070057)


  • I've been attempting to open a crash dump from one of our customers, but I receive the following error dialog from both 32bit and 64bit WinDbg: "Could not find the C:\[Path to Dump]\memdump.dmp Dump File, Win32 error 0n87. The parameter is incorrect." I can also see a "Could not match Dump File signature" in the command window. Using Dumpchk (both 32 & 64 bit) I get an error: "DebugClient cannot open DumpFile - error 80070057

    The dump was created using Procdump on a 32bit native application. 

    I've searched Google, but I seem to only find people who are having issues running certain commands, however I'm not able to open the dump at all.

    Is this dump file corrupted?
