This article explains how you can use ADPlus.vbs to create a User Mode Process dump file when a process terminates unexpectedly.

ADPlus tool is very useful in creating a User Mode Process Dump file. I always use this tool to create a dump for diagnosing purpose. ADPlus is a VB script and ships with Debugging Tools for Windows.

Steps:

  • Download the Debugging Tools for Windows from the below URL:

                http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/devtools/debugging/installx86.mspx

  • Identify the process fo which you want to create a dump file.
  • Execute the following commands:
  • ADPlus.vbs -crash -p -o

                OR

  • ADPlus.vbs -crash -pn -o
  • Using the above commands the dump file will be created when process terminates unexpectedly.

Note: You can also use the above command in Server Core.
