    How do I read the .zip file given in the BSoD


    I know a lot in PCs in Windows, however I cannot seem to find out how to read the files in the .zip in the BSoDs. Is there a program for it? Or am I doing something wrong?
    I want to know since I want to help people more.

    You mean the zip created by the DM Log Collector?

    There are three types of files in the zip.Those are .txt, .nfo and .dmp.

    • To open the zip itself, use either Windows Explorer or 7-zip.
    • To read the text files (.txt), use notepad.
    • To read the system information files (.nfo), use MSINFO32.
    • To read the crash dumps (.dmp), use Windbg.
