We have an application that runs fine under Windows NT.  When run under win32s in Windows 3.1, it crashes at random, non repeatable times.  We need a tool that can produce essentially a core file, or some type of stack dump at the time of death, so that we can analyze what happened.  Is there such a tool?  I've seen a utility that ships with Lotus Notes (qnc.exe, Quincy), that does this under OS/2, NT, and possibly others, for Lotus Notes crashes.  It provides, in a "notes.rip" text file, a dissection of the stack, so that you can tell what the call stack was at the time of death.  (It's invaluable for programming notes server add-ins).  I need something similar that I can use on/compile into, my own applications.

Any suggestions?

I have no such tool, but I can tell you how you can easily make it youself. You need to start program of interest as a debugged application and after excpetion you can examine anything in it.
If you want more detailed answer I think you must make question price higher
