Hello,

Does anyone know how to read the crash logs?

Dreamweaver keeps crashing for me and it generated a directory under:

C:\Document and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration\CrashLogs

There are a bunch of binary logs in here but I don't know how to read them.

Any ideals?

Thanks.

Hi,

How to read the CrashLog files I have not found, but at
http://www.tutorgig.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=122610&highlight=macromedia

I found
"I don't know what is causing your crash, but I do have a suggestion. Starting with the 7.0.1 release, if Dreamweaver crashes, it writes a crashlog to disk, which can help us track down the cause of the problem. Could please do this for me: Go to C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Macromedia\Dreamweaver MX 2004\Configuration

See if there is a subdirectory called "CrashLogs". If so, go there, and see if there are any files with names like "Dreamweaver crash log (1).mdmp". Check the timestamps on those to see if they seem to match the times when your
crashes occurred. (There is one .mdmp file per crash. This directory will only contain the five most recent crashlogs; if you crash a sixth time, the oldest file will be deleted.)

These files can help us track down the cause of bugs that we are not able to reproduce in-house, such as this one. If you have any such files, then please go to http://www.macromedia.com/support/email/wishform/ and send us a message, being sure to tell us "I have a crashlog to send you!" Someone will email you directly, and you can then email them the crashlog. (Sorry, the wishlist page does not have the ability to send attachments.)
Thanks - Mike Morearty, Macromedia"

It seems Macromedia can make something out of the files...

The MDMP "Memory/Microsoft/Macromedia DuMP" seems to be a format that is supposed to be understood by the sw company only... as I understand it...
See MDMP at:
