I have an mdmp file I need to read..

I have a "crash log" from dreamweaver, and I basically need it converted or copied over to a txt file.

It is in mdmp format.  

I can change it to a txt file and attach it, and someone would just need to rename it to .mdmp, and do the rest for me.

Any takers?

I think you need VB.

Not quite sure I you just need to rename the file to crash.txt?

This VBS code would do that...


Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

strOldFile = "C:\Temp\Crash.mdmp"

strNewFile = "C:\Temp\Crash.txt"

objFSO.MoveFile strOldFile, strNewFile

Open in new window

well. Yes. Except I do not have VB. So I was hoping someone could do it for me and send it back to me.

The above code is VBScript.  Windows 2000 and above should be able to handle this natively.

Copy the above code into Notepad, then do
File --> Save As
Select "All Files" from the Save as type box
Enter something like "MyScript.vbs" including the quotes as the file name, and click Save
Then double-click the VBS file.

Well, yes, but if I just rename the file, it's jibberish.  I'm trying to figure out what is in the file.  

Perhaps... what program opens a file of this type, I 'think' it's VB.

I could be completely wrong.

Ah, OK, well, first, I guess we'll need to figure out how to read MDMP files, so we know what we need to do with it....

See if this helps...

Or, I wonder if the Windows Debugging Tools can read Dreamweaver MDMP files...

No problem. Thanks for the grade.  Did you end up using the Windows Debugging Tools, or another method?
