Windows Mini Dump Analysis (*.mdmp)

Blog Post created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Mar 14, 2019

To be able to read a .mdmp file (Mini Dump), you need to have
installed the dumpchk.exe command. This one can be accessible after
installing "Windows 10 SDK" if your Laptop runs Windows 10.

You will be able to get the winsdksetup.exe from here :

 

Windows 10 SDK
https://developer.microsoft.com/en-US/windows/downloads/windows-10-sdk

 

After installing the package, you'll be able to produce a report
(report.txt) by running dumpchk.exe against the .mdmp file.

 

C:\> "C:\Program Files (x86)\Windows Kits\10\Debuggers\x64\dumpchk.exe" "C:\Users\myname\hs_err.mdmp" > c:\report.txt


Loading dump file C:\Users\maname\hs_err.mdmp

c:\report.txt is an ASCII file with details of the
dump.
