WinDbg Error


Senior Member
Been trying to read .dmp files I've d/l'd from the Forums here but everytime I open one in WinDbg I get the following:

Could not creat process "C:\Minidump\04221`-27128.dmp",
%1 is not a valid Win32 application.

I'm running Win7 Prem 64bit and I've installed all the relevant .Net Framework 4 and Debugging SDK tools etc for Win 64.

I would like to get better at this because my daughters computer needs a fix from memory dump crashes. Her computer is not here but I'd like to know how to view her errors the next time I visit so I can share them here as well as learn a bit more myself.

Thanks in advance!

I'll certainly do that when I get back over there. Don't make it over there very often. Maybe I can get her to bring the computer by and then I'll get back with you. Or if you could tell me where it places the .dmp file when it happens; I'll get her to email it to me and I can get it here that way.

Thanks tons!
