Crash Dump generation

I would like my Win 2008 Server system to generate as much information as possible when an application crash happens. Please tell me how to enable dump generation and how to analyze it. Also, please give me the location of the dump files.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ADPlus is a good alternative to DrWatson for Server 2008 - it's included in the Debugging Tools for Windows.

Here's a good article on what it is and how to use it, the 2008 info is about halfway down.

Good luck!
You will find a nice wrap-up in this article: ("Crash Dump Analysis")
