Where are the crash dumps and how do i read them

Recommended Posts

Before you analyse a crash dump, check if the text files at
c:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\WER\ReportArchive\
expose the infos you need.

Kernel crash dumps are stored at
c:\Windows\LiveKernelReports\
c:\Windows\Minidump\
and need to be analysed with WINDBG
(Visual Studio complains that kernel dumps are in old format)

Application crash dumps are stored at
c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\CrashDumps\
c:\Users\%username%\AppData\Local\Temp\

and need to be analysed with Visual Studio
(WINDBG is stuck at first exception)

I use free tools by NirSoft like What's the Hang, WinCrashReport ,or BlueScreen View, these work very well.  😃  .
