    Debugging Tools for Windows 10 Question

    Shouldn't Windbg work with any dump file, even if its for 10? OR is this Windbg only going to work with 10. What am I doing wrong?

    (BTW, this is a dump from a Windows 7 machine I'm trying to open)

    I get this error:

    Yes it should work.

    First try this link:
    This'll let you upload and perform a quck analysis on a memory dump file - which will tell you if the memory dump is corrupt or not.

    Then, if it isn't corrupt, the next step would be to uninstall the Debugging Tools and then install a freshly downloaded copy (in case of corruption).

    BUT, from looking closer at the error message, it appears that you're trying to run the dump file out of a ZIP archive. That's not supported in WinDbg. Extract the .dmp file to your Desktop and try to run it from there.

    Also, try opening up WinDbg and using the File menu to open up the extracted memory dump (the one inside the ZIP archive shouldn't open there either).

    Finally (this is sorta bass-ackwards on my part), is the question - What version of Debugging Tools are you using?
    Is it the newly released version for Win10? Please remember that that version is still "beta" software.

    Good luck!

    Thanks John, yes its the newly released 10.0 something WinDbg. I downloaded it with Windows SDK. When I was on my 8.1 machine they would always open the same way I am trying now so I'll have to see how I have it setup. Seems as though I've always clicked the link on the thread and opened the first dump and it always worked.

    Thanks for the link and info, I'll have a look at it now.

    Tried to extract to a folder in my documents and into documents itself, I got this error.

    Update: I tried opening it up manually and it works. Wonder why it won't work from simply opening the file as opposed to navigating to the file from within WinDBG?

    I always open dumps from a zipped archive, just easier that way for me. I've never had problems doing that.

    I thought this were the case but I usually default to Johns wisdom.

    I'm not questioning his wisdom, just stating what I do.

    Oh I didn't mean he is right. I was just saying I thought I always did it out of a zipped archive as well but since he said it was not supported I just figured maybe I was mistaken. I also manually opened it out of a zipped folder which worked.

    It may not be supported like he says, but it does work. I never extract the zip archive, I just work out of it and then only have one item to delete.

    Anyway, back to your original problem now, I didn't intend to derail the thread.

    Its no problem at all Derek. Your input is always welcome.

    As for the problem, I think it was because I didn't set up ALL of the associations. I only had dmp files. I set all file associations like you're supposed to and viola.. It works.

    Thanks to both for the suggestions.
