Configure Dr. Watson
Dr. Watson for Windows is a program error debugger
The information obtained and logged by Dr. Watson is the information needed by technical support groups to diagnose a program error for a computer running Windows. A text file (Drwtsn32.log) is created whenever an error is detected, and can be delivered to support personnel by the method they prefer. You also have the option of creating a crash dump file, which is a binary file that a programmer can load into a debugger.
If a program error occurs, Dr. Watson will start automatically. To start Dr. Watson, click Start, click Run, and then type drwtsn32. To start Dr. Watson from a command prompt, change to the root directory, and then type drwtsn32.
Here’s how to setup Dr. Watson
Type the following in the run
Set the log file path to an All Users location
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson
Set the dmp file to an all users location also
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Dr Watson\user.dmp
Set the number of instructions to 100
Finally, make sure that Dr Watson is the default debugger.
Run this command before you recreate crash.
That’s all there is to it.
Hope this helps those of you looking to get dump file.
