Title: Creating a dump when there's not been a crash
Post by: Jeremy Collake on April 08, 2013, 12:55:34 AM
When there hasn't been a crash, but Process Lasso is behaving oddly, one can create a dump that Bitsum can use to help diagnose the problem via these steps:

Windows Vista or later

Open the Windows Task Monitor.
Find the troublesome Process Lasso process.
Right-click on it and select 'Create Dump'

Windows XP or below

Download Process Explorer and open it.
Find the troublesome Process Lasso process.
Right-click on it and select 'Create Dump / Minidump'

Ya, and can I ask?
How I can create a minidump with this ways?
As I know, Windows Debugging Tools can do that, but it is too big to download as some of them has a bad internet. :)

What do you mean? Here's a screenshot of the Windows Task Manager.

Process Explorer
Thank for this. ;)
I means I has a bad download speed, and sometimes I just need their minidump to check what dll is loaded by their software.
But the Windows Task Manager only provide the full dump. :P

Ah, now I understand what you meant.

Yes, minidumps are awesome. I actually was able to decrease the average size of mine from 20MB+ to ~2MB. Minidumps as small as few hundred kilobytes can still be very useful.

Yes, but sometimes we want to know the true, we need fulldumps.
I still remember when someone ask why the BSOD is causing by the antivirus, he show it by debugging(was I am using correct?) the fulldump. ;)
