Windows Debugging Tutorial

  1. If your system wrote a MEMORY.DMP file, the first step is done. The file is located at
    C: Windows MEMORY.DMP
  2. If the system didn’t wrote a MEMORY.DMP file after the blue screen, then check “Saving a memory dump” tutorial and compare those settings with your system’s. After that, use your computer normally until the next system crash. The MEMORY.DMP will be created.
  3. Go to Microsoft’s website and download the “Standalone Debugging Tools for Windows (WinDbg)” program. Make sure you select the version for your current operating system.
  4. Install the “Standalone Debugging Tools for Windows (WinDbg)”.
  5. Run WinDbg (X64) as administrator, presuming 64bit operating system, click “File”, click “Symbol file path…” or ctrl s, enter this and click ok.
